German mediator delays prison swap visit to Gaza

A German mediator said by a Hamas official to have arrived in the Gaza Strip on Tuesday for talks on a Hamas-Israel prisoner swap has postponed his visit, the Islamist group said later. A Hamas official told Reuters the mediator had not arrived in Gaza.


Another official close to the negotiations said the official would travel to the territory on Wednesday because Israel wanted to modify its reply to Hamas's demands and asked him to postpone his meetings. (Reuters)
