Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas stated on Wednesday a prisoner swap deal between Israel and Hamas was still deadlocked on the question of which prisoners Hamas wants in exchange for a captured Israeli soldier. "We as the Palestinian Authority are not a party in the negotiations for an exchange but, to our knowledge, there are talks between the two sides," the Palestinian leader said in Sharm el-Sheikh after talks Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.


"They are stopping at the details and numbers of prisoners and the type of people," Hamas demands, he said, according to AFP.
