Palestinian leaders have agreed to implement a long-delayed reconciliation pact after talks in Cairo.

The leader of the secular Fatah faction, Mahmoud Abbas met his counterpart from the Islamist Hamas group Khaled Meshaal for face to face for the first time in more than a year.

The two fell-out in a bloody conflict in 2007 when Hamas seized control of the Gaza Strip.
