'Dangerously close to new intifada'

President Obama's former special envoy for Middle East peace, George Mitchell, has warned that the prospect of a third Palestinian intifada is "dangerously close".

He was speaking to BBC News a day after a deadly attack on a synagogue in Jerusalem which left four rabbis and a police officer dead.

Mr Mitchell said an intifada or uprising would be harmful to the prospect of peace.
