    Negotiators from rival Palestinian factions Fatah and Hamas are in Cairo for talks on reconciling their decade-long split.

    The deal, brokered by Egypt, follows a cabinet meeting in Gaza last week, marking the return to work of the unity government.

    But divisions remain even over the parameters for the upcoming talks.

    Al Jazeera's Harry Fawcett reports from Ramallah, the occupied West Bank.
