Abbas, Haniyeh meet for first time since 2007 split

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh met in Cairo late on Thursday night, marking the first face-to-face conversation between the two leaders since 2007, when Hamas seized full control over the Gaza Strip.
