Abbas - Mashaal meeting on unity gov't postponed

A senior member of a Palestinian faction said Saturday that the meeting scheduled between Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas and Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal was postponed. "There will be no meeting today," the Palestinian faction official told The Associated Press, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter. "There are difficulties facing such a meeting and there are current mediations to try and resolve the problems," he added, without elaborating. He said it was possible that the meeting would be held Sunday.
