Bush presses for Mid-East peace

US President George W Bush has said he is prepared to exert pressure so that Middle Eastern peace talks can succeed.

"If there needs to be a little pressure then you know I will provide it," he said after talks with Israeli prime minister Ehud Olmert.

He was speaking at the start of what he called a "historic" tour of the Middle East aimed at advancing peace talks.

However, within hours of his arrival, the Palestinians reported that Israeli forces had killed three people in Gaza.

The Palestinians accused Israel of stepping up such attacks during the run-up to Mr Bush's visit.

The Israeli raids followed rockets launched from inside Gaza into Israel.

Mr Olmert - standing alongside Mr Bush - said Israel would not tolerate such rocket attacks.

"There will be no peace until terror is stopped," he said.

But he also re-iterated his commitment to peace, saying both sides were "seriously trying to move forward in order to realise the vision of a two-state solution".
