WASHINGTON, Mar 2 (Reuters) The caretaker Palestinian government has returned 30 million dollar in aid to the United States as part of a review by Washington of aid to the Palestinians since the militant group Hamas won elections, a senior U S official said today.

U S Assistant Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs David Welch told lawmakers the 30 million dollar, which had been earmarked for infrastructure work, was returned yesterday as well as another tranche of 76,000 dollar in aid. The U S government is awaiting a further 20 million dollar to be reimbursed.
