A few final points of contention have led to a deadlock in the talks between Israelis and Palestinians regarding reopening of the Rafah crossing between Gaza and Egypt. Vice Premier Shimon Peres and the Quartet's Middle East envoy James Wolfensohn discussed the disagreements during a meeting late Thursday night, Israel Radio reported. According to Peres, Wolfensohn was incensed over the fact that the two sides were failing to reach an accord regarding security procedures at the crossing. The chief variance is regarding Israel's demand and the PA's refusal to provide live transmission of video footage from the border crossing.
