Palestinians reject Israel talks proposal as 'blackmail'

RAMALLAH (AFP) -- The Palestinians have rejected an Israeli proposal to extend the crumbling peace talks beyond April 29, saying it was akin to "blackmail," an official in Ramallah told AFP on Monday.

"Israel is practicing a policy of blackmail and linking its agreement to releasing the fourth batch of prisoners with the Palestinians accepting to extend the negotiations," the official said following a late-night meeting at which the proposal was laid out to chief negotiator Saeb Erakat.
