Fatah Official: Unity Government to be Announced This Week

The Palestinian Authority unity government, comprised of Fatah and Hamas, is expected to be announced later this week, a negotiator told The Associated Press (AP) on Monday.

Azzam al-Ahmed, a Fatah negotiator, traveled to Gaza on Monday for what he said would be a final round of talks with Hamas leaders about the Cabinet lineup. A temporary government of technocrats is to prepare for general elections in 2015.
