Palestinian Authority Hopes Prisoner Release 'Delay' Only Brief

A senior Palestinian Authority (PA) official said a release by Israel of imprisoned Arab terrorists would not go ahead on Saturday as envisaged but he hoped there would only be short delay. "Today the prisoners will not be released... maybe in the coming days," Issa Qaraqae, the minister of prisoner affairs, told AFP. "There are efforts to solve the crisis and I believe that in 24 hours everything will be clearer."
