Middle East peace talks have resumed after Israeli and Palestinian negotiators dined in Washington DC with US Secretary of State John Kerry.

The talks resumed after three years as Israel approved the release of more than 100 Palestinian prisoners.

Earlier, US President Barack Obama welcomed the discussions but cautioned that "hard choices" lay ahead.
