Hamas PM Ismail Haniyeh meets Egypt's intel chief
Haniyeh met with Raafat Shehata on Sunday, a day after arriving in Egypt; President Mohammed Morsi mediated a cease-fire between Hamas and Israel last year.
Gaza Strip's Hamas ruler Ismail Haniyeh has met with Egypt's intelligence chief to discuss Palestinian reconciliation and the cease-fire between the militant group and Israel, Egypt's state news agency said on Sunday.
Relations between Egypt and Hamas are high on the agenda. Hamas, a Palestinian offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, the group from which Morsi hails, has come under attack by some in Egypt who accuse it of harboring militants that operate in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula.
Hamas leader Khaled Meshal is also in Egypt, where the group is expected to choose its next leader. Meshal is a top candidate for the post.
