US in Middle East peace U-turn

Palestinians say the peace process is in danger after US gives Israel settlement boost.

    The Palestinians are accusing Washington of killing all hope of reviving the peace process with the Israelis.

    It comes after Hillary Clinton, the US secretary of state, signalled a U-turn on settlement building.

    During a visit to Jerusalem, she told the Palestinians that the issue is not now a precondition for negotiations.

    Jacky Rowland takes a look at the ramifications.
