    Barack Obama, the US president, has called on Israel to lift the "siege" on Palestinians, after a meeting with Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president.



    Wednesday's meeting in Washington also resulted in a $400m US aid package for Gaza and the West Bank.



    Abbas said Obama's statement is a "positive signal" that the US cared about the suffering of those in Gaza and the Palestinian people.
