Jordan's King Abdullah on Sunday called off what would have been a rare visit to the West Bank, citing bad weather, but will reschedule in coming days, an aide to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas said. Journalists had been waiting for nearly five hours for the king's arrival at Abbas' headquarters in Ramallah.
