Official: Israelis, Palestinians begin peace talks

ASSOCIATED PRESS

JERUSALEM — An Israeli official says a new round of peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians has begun.

It is the first substantive talks between the sides in nearly five years.

The Israeli government released a brief video showing the chief negotiators shaking hands. It gave no further details on the whereabouts of the meeting.

The official said the talks were taking place in Jerusalem. The official refused to give further details and spoke on condition of anonymity, as no one had immediate authorization to publicly discuss the talks.
