A White House official said President Barack Obama met privately with lead Israeli and Palestinian negotiators the day after they restarted long-stalled peace negotiations in Washington. The meeting came after Israeli and Palestinian negotiators held their first peace talks in nearly three years in a U.S.-brokered effort that Secretary of State John Kerry hopes will end their conflict despite deep divisions.
