Palestinian factions Hamas and Fatah are like two brothers "in a cage," Palestinian Foreign Minister Ziad Abu Amr said Wednesday, adding that the recent deadly clashes between the groups were a result of pressures imposed by outside forces. "If you have two brothers, put them in a cage and deprive them of basic and essential needs for life, they will fight," Abu Amr told a news conference in Tokyo. "We need to undo the very problematic situation that mainly others have created."
