Hamas rejects announcement of peace talks resumption

Hamas spokesperson Sami Abu Zuhri dismissed US State Secretary John Kerry's announcement of the resumption of peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians and said that Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas does not have the authority to represent the Palestinian people.
