A Wednesday meeting between Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and Palestinian Prime Minister Mahmoud Abbas is postponed due to Abbas' heavy schedule. Palestinian officials say the meeting, which is expected to focus on a U.S.-backed "road map" to Mideast peace, could be held on Thursday. The delay comes as Israel outlines its reservations to the peace plan. Hear NPR's Linda Gradstein.
