Palestinian factions reach agreement

Rival Palestinian leaders have agreed to form a government of technocrats ending years of bloodshed.

    Rival Palestinian groups Hamas and Fatah have reached an agreement towards forming a government of technocrats ending years of political division and bloodshed. 

    Palestianians say they have been continuously disappointed in their respective leaders but hope a change is at hand.

    The decision comes at a time when US-led talks between Israelis and Palestinians appear to be failing.
