Hamas leader says Netanyahu personally stops prisoner swap

A senior Hamas leader said on Tuesday indirect talks with Israel on a prisoner exchange had collapsed and blamed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for exaggerating Israeli terms.

"The main cause ... is that after the interference of the political element, after the interference of Netanyahu personally, there was a big regression and retraction," Mahmoud al-Zahar told BBC World News' Hardtalk programme.

"For this reason, everything now is stopped," Zahar said in Gaza.
