Report: Israel, Hamas negotiating in Cairo to free Schalit

Hamas and Israel have begun a fresh set of indirect negotiations in Cairo to complete a prisoner swap deal in order to secure the release of kidnapped soldier Gilad Schalit from the Gaza Strip, Al Hayat reported Monday.
According to the report, representatives from Jerusalem and the Islamist group met last week for negotiations but failed to produce any results, prompting Egyptian mediators to push for renewed talks.
A senior Egyptian official told Al Hayat Monday "It is not yet possible to talk about any breakthroughs in negotiations."
