Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu has ordered his housing minister to reconsider construction plans for more than 20,000 homes in the West Bank.

 

He said the plans, announced by Housing Minister Uri Ariel earlier on Tuesday, would create unnecessary friction with the international community.

 

The US had earlier said it was "deeply concerned" over the Israeli plans.

 

The Palestinians had said they would appeal to the UN, warning that Israel's move would kill off peace talks.
