    Obama invites middle east heads

    US officials say the leaders of Israel, Egypt and the Palestinians have been invited for talks in Washington in a new push for Middle East peace.

    PM Benjamin Netanyahu, President Hosni Mubarak and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas have been asked to the White House for talks likely by early June.

    The peace process has been beset by conflict and adversity which President Barack Obama has pledged to address.

    There is no indication the Arab and Israeli leaders will meet directly.

    Mr Obama's spokesman Robert Gibbs said the visits were likely to take place before the president's scheduled trip to France on 6 June.

    "With each of them the president will discuss ways the United States can strengthen and deepen our partnerships with them, as well as the steps all parties must take to achieve peace between Israel and the Palestinians and Israel and the Arab states," Mr Gibbs told a news conference.

    Netanyahu's people got up with Obama's people and they wanted a little promenade earlier, especially before the Jordans have their say. Obama's people refused.
