Egypt hosts summit, invites Israel, Jordan, and Palestinians

Egypt plans a summit for next week. All parties have agreed to attend. It is to be held Tuesday at the resort of Sharm al-Sheik on the Red Sea. It is expected that the focus will be on some sort of prisoner release and West Bank troop deployment. The word of the summit came as representatives of Hamas and Islamic Jihad met with Egyptian intelligence officials in Cairo. This summit is seen as a key step to an accord between the Palestinian factions.
