Palestinian gov't still in place, US aid continues

WASHINGTON - The Palestinian government remains in place despite a reconciliation deal between the two main Palestinian factions and US aid continues to flow to it, US State Department spokeswoman Heide Bronke-Fulton said on Thursday, saying it would review aid if a new one is formed.
The US State Department spokeswoman was reacting to the new Palestinian unity deal which could imperil hundreds of millions of dollars in US aid if it gives a more prominent role to Hamas.
