Palestinian Authority Chairman Yasser Arafat invited Hamas officials to meet with him Tuesday to discuss participation in his government. Arafat is expected to reshuffle his Cabinet in the coming days to avoid a no-confidence vote by the Palestinian legislature. The meeting, likely to bring strong criticisms from Israel, could represent an attempt by Arafat to undercut the growing Hamas challenge to his authority.
