Hamas officials based in Gaza have returned to Egypt for more talks with Egyptian mediators on the Gaza truce. The officials said discussions would focus on a "working paper" to consolidate the cease-fire with Israel following the three-week offensive. They spoke after crossing from the coastal strip on Friday. One official said the talks - slated for Sunday - would also address the fate of captured IDF soldier, Sgt. Gilad Schalit. The Hamas officials all spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the negotiations.
