Israel Bans Palestinian PM from East Jerusalem Event

Israel is banning Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad from attending a Palestinian Authority-sponsored event in East Jerusalem, Haaretz learned on Monday.

Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad speaks to the media in the West Bank city of Ramallah on Aug. 30, 2010.

Fayyad was scheduled to make an appearance on Tuesday at two East Jerusalem schools to mark the PA-sponsored renovation of 15 educational institutions in the city. The reception and ceremony was to take place in the Dahyat al-Salam neighborhood.
