"Israel and Hamas ... announced Tuesday they had reached a tentative agreement brokered by Egypt to exchange more than 1,000 Palestinian prisoners for an Israeli soldier held captive for more than five years. ... It was unclear Tuesday night when the exchange would take place. Al Arabiya, the satellite network, which first reported that Egyptian mediators had made a breakthrough in the prisoner-swap negotiations, said it could happen next month." (10/11/11)
