CAIRO: The Arab League has called an emergency meeting of foreign ministers for April 9 on the floundering US-brokered Israel-Palestinian peace talks, League chief Nabil al-Arabi said on Wednesday.

The meeting will discuss Israel's refusal to release Palestinian prisoners, a sticking point in the protracted negotiations, Arabi told reporters.
