Is Shalit Already in Egypt?

Via tomorrow's Ha'aretz, a Kuwaiti paper is reporting that Gilad Shalit is already in Egypt and the prisoner swap is underway.

For those who read Arabic here's the PDF of tomorrow morning's Al-Jarida from Kuwait: the Shalit story is on the lower left; here's the story in HTML. Citing sources in Egypt. Al-Jarida is a relatively new paper (2007) I'm not really familiar with but it apparently is respected and has considerable circulation. Experience suggests caution: there've been so many false starts. But I note it for the record, since it could evaporate by morning.
