Abbas Calls 'Emergency Meeting' Over Bodies Found

Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has called an "emergency meeting" over the news that the bodies of Gilad Sha'ar (16), Naftali Frenkel (16), and Eyal Yifrah (19) have been found in the PA.

"Abbas has convened an urgent meeting of the Palestinian leadership tonight to discuss the latest developments," his spokesman Nabil Abu Rudeina told AFP.

The announcement follows widespread condemnation of the murders, and calls for revenge against Hamas - and often the PA, by extension and in connection with the recent Hamas-Fatah unity pact - by both Israeli and world leaders.
