Israel cancels negotiations session with Palestinians after unity deal

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel on Wednesday cancelled a planned session of peace negotiations with the Palestinians shortly after a unity deal was signed in Gaza between Hamas Islamists and President Mahmoud Abbas's Palestine Liberation Organisation.
