New hope for a cease-fire in Gaza

Monday, January 12, 2009

Former British prime minister Tony Blair is back in the spotlight again in his new role of special Mideast envoy representing the U.S., the E.U., Russia, and the United Nations. He is in Cairo today for a series of meetings with Israel and Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. Mr. Blair says the elements are in place for a cease-fire to end the fighting in the Gaza Strip. For an on-the-ground report of events in Cairo, we are joined by Magdi Abdelhadi, the Arab affairs analyst for our partner the BBC.
