Knesset Meets

As Israeli-Palestinian violence continues in the Middle East, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak is in negotiations with Likud leader Ariel Sharon to form what he's calling a national emergency government. Barak now has 30 votes out of a 120 member Knesset which means his government could easily fall in a vote of no-confidence leading to new elections. NPR's Linda Gradstein reports from Jerusalem.
