The withdrawal of Rick Santorum from the Republican presidential contest was announced in a hastily called 12-minute speech Tuesday in which the former Pennsylvania senator gracefully exited the race while tears filled the eyes of his wife and aides.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has agreed to meet a delegation next week headed by Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad to accept a letter in which the Palestinians spell out their conditions for resuscitating the comatose peace process.
