Israel has released 26 Palestinian prisoners as part of a deal that will see peace talks resume today.

 

Buses carrying the inmates drove them from a prison in central Israel to the Beitunia crossing in the West Bank and the Erez crossing with the Gaza Strip.

 

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas greeted the 11 sent to the West Bank, while crowds met the other 15 in Gaza.

 

Israeli and Palestinian representatives will begin direct talks in Jerusalem after a three-year hiatus.
