Al-Jazeera Video: Riz Khan- The question of Palestinian refugees-22 Sep 09

Part 1:

Part 2:

"....but one thing is clear: the question of what to do with the millions of Palestinian refugees is still on the backburner.

The refugees have been demanding to return to their original homes in what is now Israel for the past 61 years, but Tel Aviv insists that will never happen, because it would mean the end of the Jewish majority in the country.

In the meantime, the 58 refugee camps spread throughout the region are constant reminders that the Palestinian-Israeli conflict is far from resolved.

In New York for a special series of programmes as world leaders gather for the UN general assembly Riz talks to the head of the UN agency in charge of Palestinian refugees, UNRWA Commissioner-General Karen AbuZayd."
