Mideast Peace Talks to Resume

NPR's Linda Gradstein reports from Jerusalem that peace talks between Israel and Syria are expected to resume this week, despite speculation that they would be postponed.

The Syrian editorials appeared after Israeli newspapers published a secret American document about the Israeli-Syrian negotiations.
