White House split over settlements

Divisions reportedly growing within Obama administration over illegal settlements.

    US and Israeli officials have said there is no serious tensions between the close allies, but the disagreement over illegal settlements in occupied East Jerusalem may have led to a policy dispute inside the White House.

    Despite the official denials the settlement dispute is growing into an issue that is reportedly dividing opinions within the Obama administration.

    Al Jazeera's Rosiland Jordan reports on what that could mean for attempts to restart Middle East peace talks.
