Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas held talks with exiled Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal Thursday as renewed fighting raged in Gaza following the collapse of Egyptian-brokered truce efforts.The talks in Doha, where Meshaal is based, were hosted by Qatari Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, a key backer of the Islamist movement which dominates Gaza, the Gulf state's QNA news agency reported. A Palestinian delegate told AFP that the talks between the three leaders lasted nearly three hours and were expected to be followed by a two-way meeting between Abbas and Meshaal. Meshaal was accompanied by his deputy Moussa Abu Marzuk, who also took part in the Cairo talks which collapsed as fighting resumed Tuesday.
