Palestinian Cabinet Ministers Make Rare Visit to Gaza on Unity Mission

Ten months after taking office, Cabinet ministers in a Palestinian unity government are making a rare visit to the Gaza Strip. The Cabinet ministers, all from the West Bank, are spending the week in Gaza in hopes of wresting more control from the Islamic Hamas movement. Hamas took control of Gaza from the forces of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas in 2007. Ihab Bsaiso, the government's spokesman, said Sunday's visit was meant to "break the freeze."
