Israel and Palestinians 'to announce ceasefire'

Israeli and Palestinian leaders are gathering at a Middle East summit today to make an expected ceasefire announcement aimed at ending four years of violence and beginning a new era of peace talks.
An invitation to both sides to meet separately with US president George Bush at the White House this spring added another round of momentum yesterday.

'I hope it will be positive. I hope it will open the road for bilateral negotiations,' said Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas.
