GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip – A Palestinian official says Gaza´s prime minister will head to Cairo within the next two weeks to meet with Egypt´s new Islamist president, who has close ties with the territory´s Hamas rulers.
Paragraph-1 Contains
Cabinet secretary Mohammed Askoul says Ismail Haniyeh will meet President Mohammed Morsi and senior Egyptian security officials. Haniyeh wants Egypt to open its border with Gaza.
Paragraph-2 Contains
Hamas is an offshoot of Morsi´s region-wide Muslim Brotherhood movement.
Paragraph-3 Contains
Gazans hoping the Brotherhood will grant them freedom of movement after five years of confinement may be disappointed. Morsi´s powers are limited and he has more pressing issues at home to address.
Paragraph-4 Contains
Hamas´ 2007 Gaza takeover prompted Egypt, like Israel, to seal Gaza´s borders. Although the border has been cracked open, many travel restrictions remain and there is no above-board trade.(© 2012 The Associated Press 07/05/12)
