Europe and the US

Bernard Guetta on France Inter this morning: 'Washington et Bruxelles, c’est tout l’Occident qui est en crise.'
US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice brokered the deal which sees the Rafah border due to open on 25 November. European foreign policy envoy Javier Solana has nominated a senior Italian military policeman to head a European monitoring presence at Rafah.
Ms Rice had extended her Middle East visit to help nail down the agreement. [... She] had spent the night shuttling back and forth between Israeli and Palestinian negotiators. She said she got only two hours' sleep.
