Hamas and Fatah 'in unity talks'

Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal has told the BBC he is in talks with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas about forming a national unity government.

Mr Meshaal also said preparations were being made for presidential and parliamentary elections.

The split between the militant group and Mr Abbas's Fatah party has led to Palestinian elections being postponed for several years.

Hamas controls Gaza while Fatah remains dominant in the West Bank.
