GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) -- Mideast envoy Tony Blair will visit the Gaza Strip this week, a Hamas spokesman said Monday, the former British prime minister's first trip to the coastal territory since Hamas seized control violently a year ago.
Blair is expected to meet traders and inspect a northern Gaza wastewater project being built with international funds, said Palestinian businessmen and officials familiar with his trip. They spoke on condition of anonymity because the visit has not been officially announced.

LMAO. Nice one.
I'm quite suprised Blair of all people is going to Hamas territory. Perhaps he is going to reinvent himself as a man of peace.

According to the BBC, Blair has cancelled his visit to Gaza due to a "specific security threat".
Seems like you were somewhat prophetic, Cadbury
