Israelis protest as 26 Palestinian prisoners freed

Israel has begun the process of freeing a group of 26 Palestinian prisoners, whose release was agreed as part of the deal to restart peace talks.

The prisoners, most of whom carried out attacks more than 20 years ago, were driven out of a jail in white minibuses with tinted windows.

Palestinian and Israeli negotiators began direct talks two weeks ago for the first time in three years, with more talks due to begin in Jerusalem on Wednesday.

Kevin Connolly reports from Jerusalem.
