Obama tours symbolic sites in Israel and West Bank

US President Barack Obama has concluded his trip to Israel and the West Bank by paying his respects to victims of the Holocaust and visiting Bethlehem.

Mr Obama went to the Yad Vashem museum after seeing the graves of Theodor Herzl, the founder of modern Zionism, and former Israeli PM Yitzhak Rabin.

The BBC's Lyse Doucet said Mr Obama had charmed Israelis by "telling them the story of Israel".
