Media in the Palestinian Authority boycotted a meeting Tuesday between the speaker of the US House of Representatives and Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas as part of a wider protest against the Palestinian Authority government's inability to free a kidnapped BBC journalist. US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a California Democrat, is on a Middle East tour with a delegation of lawmakers, including the first Muslim member of Congress, Democratic Rep.
