Palestinians take statehood bid to the UN

This week Palestinians are expected to go the United Nations in New York to ask to become recognised as a state.

Such a state would include the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem, all land Israel captured in 1967.

The Israeli leadership is fiercely against the move, which comes a year after US led Middle East peace talks collapsed.

The BBC's West Bank correspondent, Jon Donnison reports.
