Netanyahu seeks compromise with US on settlements

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says he will seek a compromise in talks with the United States that would allow Israel to proceed with some settlement construction while restarting peace talks with the Palestinians.
Israel's leader is on a four-day European tour and will meet his British counterpart Tuesday.
Netanyahu is trying to balance the demands of his right-leaning ruling coalition against an international front opposed to Israeli settlements. The Palestinians want Israel to agree to settlement freeze before resuming talks.
Netanyahu says he hopes upcoming talks with U.S. officials will "find a bridging formula that will enable us to at once launch a process but enable those residents to continue living normal lives."
