Palestinian prisoner release highlights divisions

Ahead of peace talks scheduled to resume on Wednesday, the planned release of 26 Palestinian prisoners has sparked anger in Israel.

The 26 long-term prisoners set for release are the first of 104 Palestinian and Israeli Arab inmates to be freed over the next few months as part of an agreement to restart US-brokered direct peace talks after a three-year hiatus.

The BBC's Kevin Connolly reports on divisions ahead of the discussions in Jerusalem, and speaks to the brother of a murdered Israeli and a former Palestinian prisoner, freed in the 1990s.
