British lawmaker George Galloway has held a meeting with Gaza's Hamas prime minister at an undisclosed location.
Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh has kept out of sight since Israel launched a devastating military offensive against Hamas last December.
Haniyeh's office says the meeting took place on Tuesday. It released a picture of the two men embracing and says Galloway was awarded an honorary Palestinian passport.
Galloway left Gaza on Wednesday through the Egyptian border. Galloway led a delegation that he says delivered some $1.1 million of humanitarian aid to Gaza. Among those traveling with Galloway was Lauren Booth, the sister-in-law of international Mideast envoy and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair.
