Arab League delays meeting on Gaza op until Wednesday

The Arab League has delayed until Wednesday a meeting of Arab foreign ministers to discuss Israel's military operation in the Gaza Strip, Reuters reported. Arab League Secretary-General Amr Moussa said the meeting was postponed because many of the ministers were engaged in separate meetings of Arab regional groups. "The time worries us very much because of the delay in holding the ministerial meeting but we will not remain silent and consultations are continuing," he said.
