Dahlan to go to Cairo to discuss opening Rafah

Palestinian Authority Civil Affairs Minister Muhammad Dahlan was set to go to Cairo Wednesday morning to discuss the opening of the Rafah border crossing, scheduled to open on Friday. Teams headed by Dahlan, head of the Defense Ministry's Political and Security Division Amos Gilad and the American envoy Dick Jones have met Tuesday night to discuss the issue, and were scheduled to reconvene Wednesday evening, according to Army Radio. Israel and the Palestinian Authority agreed last week that representatives from the EU would monitor the border crossing.
