Netanyahu says Israel 'to build in Jerusalem'


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has asserted Israel's "right to build" in Jerusalem, amid a row with the US over plans for new homes in the city.

"Jerusalem is not a settlement, it's our capital," the Israeli prime minister said in Washington.

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton earlier urged Israel to make "difficult but necessary choices" for peace.

Steve Kingstone reports.
