Jordan’s King Abdullah postponed a trip to Israel and the West Bank. Abdullah had been due to fly in this month for talks with Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, but officials said Tuesday that the visit had been put off indefinitely. They cited recent Palestinian infighting in Gaza as the reason. Jordan watches Palestinian instability closely, fearing it could spill over into its borders.
