Egypt on Saturday denied a report that Hamas political chief Khaled Mashaal planned to visit Cairo to take part in negotiations connected with a prisoner exchange deal with Israel. The report, published Friday by the London-based Arab daily al-Hayat, cited Egyptian sources. Egypt meanwhile announced that it had doubled its border police deployment in the area adjacent to the Gaza Strip from 750 to 1,500, responding, it said, to Israeli requests to help stem arms smuggling.
