'Israel has agreed to release all 450 prisoners demanded by Hamas'

Israel agreed to release all 450 Palestinian prisoners listed by Hamas's demands in exchange for kidnapped soldier Gilad Schalit, Ha'aretz reported early Friday. According to the report, which cites Palestinian sources in Cairo, the deal had yet to be completed because of Israel's requirement that a portion of the detainees be deported and not returned to the Palestinian Authority. The Jerusalem Post could not confirm the report.
