Scuffles at Jerusalem protest

Palestinians clash with Israeli settlers and police as US pushes for peace talks.

    Palestinian demonstrators have hurled stones at Jewish settlers rallying for the demolition of Arab houses in occupied East Jerusalem.

    The clashes took place on Sunday as George Mitchell, the US special envoy to the Middle East, was visiting Israeli officials in Tel Aviv for talks on restarting the peace process between Palestinians and Israelis.

    Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, reportedly tried but failed to ban the settlers' march.
