Netanyahu, Abbas shake hands at funeral for Peres

PALESTINIAN President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu shook hands yesterday and exchanged brief words at the funeral of Shimon Peres, the former Israeli leader who won international acclaim for peacemaking with the Palestinians.

US President Barack Obama and other world leaders gathered for the burial in Jerusalem’s Mount Herzl cemetery, two days after Peres, a former president and premier, died at the age of 93.
