Leaders of France, Egypt talk about Gaza's future

French President Nicolas Sarkozy was hosting Egypt's President Hosni Mubarak on Monday amid preparations for an aid conference for the Gaza Strip and diplomatic efforts for a more durable truce in the Palestinian territory. The two leaders helped push Israel toward ending a three-week offensive in Gaza last month meant to halt years of rocket fire on southern Israeli communities. Gaza's Hamas rulers announced their own cease-fire the same day. Egypt is hosting an aid conference March 2 meant to raise money for rebuilding Gaza, after the offensive shattered infrastructure in the territory.
