Ehud Barak: Settlement deal has '50-50' chance

Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak has told the BBC there is a "50-50" chance of reaching a deal with Palestinians about Israel's settlement moratorium as a 10-month partial ban winds down.

Palestinians have said they could leave recently resumed peace talks if the construction freeze is not extended.
