Hamas chief Meshaal surfaces in Cairo

Khaled Meshaal, the political chief of the Palestinian Hamas movement who is at the head of Israel’s most-wanted list, has surfaced in Egypt, Cairo airport sources revealed. The Damascus-based Meshaal emerged as the undisputed leader of Hamas this year after the movement’s spiritual leader Sheikh Ahmed Yassin and his successor Abdelaziz Rantissi, were both killed in Israeli air strikes in Gaza City. The Egyptian sources said Meshaal — who escaped an Israeli attempt on his life in 1997 — arrived in Cairo late Saturday and was escorted to an undisclosed location.
