Mishaal in Cairo at outset of Arab, Islamic tour

Khaled Mishaal, political bureau chairman of the Hamas Movement, arrived in Cairo on Monday at the outset of an Arab, Islamic tour to consult with leaders of those countries in the wake of his Movement's significant victory in last month's legislative elections.

Mishaal, who is heading a senior delegation of the Movement, is further expected to discuss the pressures on the Palestinian people following Hamas' victory.

Sources close to the delegation said that the members met with Omar Suleiman, the director general of the Egyptian intelligence apparatus, along with other officials.

The sources noted that the debates focused on the pressures on the Palestinian people and means of confronting them. They added that the Hamas team briefed the officials on the Movement's plans for re-arranging the internal Palestinian arena.

The Hamas delegation groups deputy political bureau chairman Dr. Mousa Abu Marzouk, bureau members Sami Khater, Emad Al-Alami, Mohammed Nazzal, Ezzet Al-Resheq and Mohammed Nasr in addition to the political leaders based in the Gaza Strip: Dr. Mahmoud Al-Zahhar, Ismail Haneyya, Sheikh Sa'eed Siyam and Dr. Nizar Rayyan.
