Talks between the Israelis and the Palestine Liberation Organisation on a long-postponed redeployment from the West Bank town of Hebron, set to resume in the Egyptian Red Sea resort of Taba today, have been delayed until tomorrow, an Israeli spokesman said.

The delay was suggested by the US peace envoy Dennis Ross, who has been mediating in the talks, which began last week. The PLO said it had not been told of the delay. Reuter - Jerusalem
