US house repossessions suspended

Repossession of houses are being suspended across the United States, amidst allegations that banks foreclosed on homes without the correct paperwork.

Last week Bank of America, the country's largest bank, suspended foreclosures in all 50 states.

Three other banks have imposed partial freezes in 23 states.
