Report: Egypt to free Ilan Grapel after Schalit swap

Egypt will free jailed American- Israeli law student Ilan Grapel shortly after the completion of the Hamas-Israel prisoner swap that will see the release of Gilad Schalit, Egyptian newspaper Al Ahram reported on Sunday.
According to the report, Israel is expected to release 81 Egyptian prisoners.
Grapel's release will be made possible by Israel's apology for the death of Egyptian soldiers on its border two months ago, Egyptian mediation in the Schalit deal as well as the release of Israel's Egyptian prisoners.
