NPR's Mike Shuster reports on the latest events in the Middle East. Secretary of State Colin Powell has been unable to arrange a ceasefire between Israelis and Palestinians. Powell met with Palestinian Authority leader Yasser Arafat for the first time on Sunday. He also had a second meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. He now flies to Lebanon and Syria to try to resolve tensions on Israel's northern border.
