Rival Palestinian groups were wrangling Sunday over how to form a power-sharing government and what its stance should be toward previous peace agreements with Israel. The Cairo talks mediated by Egypt aimed to lay the groundwork for a transitional government and then presidential and legislative elections. The formation of a unity government would also clear the way for desperately needed aid to be delivered to the Gaza Strip. The rivals have been talking in Cairo since last Tuesday, but significant differences remain, especially on the timing and supervision of elections and whether a power-sharing deal will see Hamas become part of the Fatah-led PLO.
