    US President Donald Trump held talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in which he promised to help broker an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal.

    However, he gave little indication of how he could revive negotiations that collapsed in 2014.

    On the second leg of his Middle East trip after visiting Saudi Arabia, Trump also made a visit to the Western Wall in East Jerusalem.

    Trump is expected to meet with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Tuesday.

    Al Jazeera's Harry Fawcett reports from Jerusalem.
