Sharon, Abbas Formally Announce Cease Fire

Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas formally announce an end to fighting. The two leaders held a landmark meeting at Egypt's Red Sea resort Sharm el-Sheik.

Abbas has accepted an invitation to meet with Sharon at his ranch in southern Israel, and both leaders have accepted a White House invitation to meet separately with President Bush in the spring.
