'Eco-school' under threat in West Bank

Israeli settlers push for demolition of innovative school built with recycled materials, saying it is illegal.

    September is the month when children in many parts of the world begin a new school year.

    But in the occupied West Bank, an innovative village school built with recycled materials, is under threat.

    The residents of the illegal Israeli settlement nearby say the school is an illegal structure, and they are calling for the government to demolish it.

    Al Jazeera's Paul Brennan reports from the West Bank.
