According to al-Hayat al-Jadida, the General Committee of Civil Affairs and the International Committee of the Red Cross have reached a deal to allow Palestinian families to visit their imprisoned members in Israeli jails twice a month.

A nun for many years, Alice, who was married to Prince Andrew of Greece, died in 1969 and had first been laid to rest in St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle.

According to Daniel Siryoti, the Arab affairs analyst for the Israeli daily, the leaders of the Arab countries Kushner visited were the ones who advised him to give an interview to the Palestinian newspaper Al-Quds on Sunday, where he sharply criticized Abbas' ability to make a deal and said that the US plan will be presented with or without his consent.

Britain's Prince William toured Jerusalem's most sacred and sensitive sites yesterday, wrapping up a politically delicate visit that both Palestinians and Israelis, locked in a lengthy conflict, were able to embrace. The Prince, wearing a kippah, then stepped up alone to place a note between the stones and reflect in a moment of silent prayer.
