Al-Jazeera Video: Jerusalem Palestinians fear eviction by Israel - 17 Apr 09
"George Mitchell, the US special envoy to the Middle East, has met Palestinian leaders in the Israeli-occupied West Bank as part of efforts to revive stalled peace talks.
Many Palestinians hope that he will intervene to stop them being evicted from their homes by Israel. But Palestinian families in east Jerusalem were this week served with eviction notices, despite the fact that the eastern half of the city is meant to constitute the capital of a future Palestinian state. The evictions are illegal, according to international law.
Clayton Swisher met some of those threatened with the loss of their homes."
