Israel and Hamas have renewed indirect negotiations in Cairo for the release of Gilad Schalit and are showing greater flexibility in efforts to reach an agreement, the London-based Arab daily al Hayat reported on Friday. A Hamas official told the newspaper his group would now accept Israel's demand that some of the released prisoners be deported rather than sent back to their homes, as this option is better than having the men stay in jail, and Israel had agreed to release several senior prisoners who were not included on earlier lists. Another source reportedly told al Hayat that the next 24-hours would be crucial for the prisoner exchange deal.
