Palestinians raise flag at Washington office

In a symbolic gesture, the Palestinians have raised their flag over their diplomatic mission in Washington for the first time as they continue a push for international recognition that is complicating the Obama administration's efforts to restart stalled Mideast peace talks.


At a brief ceremony on Tuesday, the Palestinians' chief envoy to the United States hoisted the red, green, white and black banner outside the PLO General Delegation office. He expressed hope it would help in the Palestinian quest to win support for independence with or without a peace deal with Israel. (AP)
