Arab Israelis' struggle for land


Israel's housing minister has called on Orthodox Jews to move to the north of the country to stop what he described as the "spread of Arabs" there.

One in every five Israeli citizens is Arab, with many living in northern Israel. But human rights groups say access to land is already restricted for them.

Katya Adler reports from the Arab-Israeli town of Majdal Krum.
