Palestinian Hamas demanded Saturday that Jordan clarify an Israeli daily's report which said the Jordanian king allegedly spoke in favor of paying compensations to Palestinian refugees instead of ensuring their right of return. The report Friday in Haaretz claimed King Abdullah II had told a visiting Israeli Knesset delegation this week that he favored the payments over the right of return. The report cited unidentified members of the Israeli lawmakers' delegation. A member of the Israeli delegation, speaking on condition of anonymity, told AP on Saturday that the Jordanian monarch's comments were accurately reported by the paper. He gave no further details.
