Germany's foreign minister spoke with newly appointed Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad on Saturday and assured him of the EU's support, an official said. PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas dismantled a unity coalition between Hamas and his Fatah movement after Hamas took control of Gaza by force earlier this week. He fired the Hamas prime minister and replaced him with Fayyad, previously the finance minister.
