US Secretary of State Colin Powell may visit Israel on Friday to try and get Israelis and Palestinians to stay on track with the 'road map' peace plan following the latest violence, Israel Radio on Monday reported a senior US official as saying.
Powell met earlier that day with Israeli Prime Minister Sharon's bureau chief Dov Weisglass.
The US Secretary of State is also scheduled to meet with representatives of the Quartet in Jordan next Sunday. (Albawaba.com)
