US Middle East envoy expected next week: Diplomats

U.S. President Barack Obama's special envoy to the Middle East is expected to arrive in the region next week, bringing a quick start to the new administration's efforts for Israeli-Palestinian peace.

Western diplomats told Reuters on Saturday that former U.S. Senator George Mitchell would try to shore up a shaky ceasefire in the Gaza Strip between Hamas ans Israel. They said Mitchell was expected to make stops in Israel and the occupied West Bank.
