Kalandia Rioter Previously Released in Shalit Deal
The United States has denied that a session of talks between Israel and the Palestinian Authority had been cancelled following the deaths of three rioters in the Kalandia refugee camp, north of Jerusalem.
"I can assure you that no meeting has been cancelled," State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf told reporters.
Meanwhile, it has been revealed that one of the three terrorists killed in the early hours of this morning had been released in 2011, as part of the deal to free Gilad Shalit.
