To our viewers from America to Argentina, Japan and Germany to South Korea and Hong Kong, welcome to CNN Student News. I'm Carl Azuz and we thank you for taking 10 minutes to watch today's show.

 

First up, it's been 10 months since Israel put a stop to building houses in settlements in the West Bank. 10 months was how long that stop in construction was supposed to last. And last night, the rule was scheduled to change back, meaning Israelis could resume1 building the settlements. Here's why that's important. Palestinians don't want Israel to build in the West Bank. The Palestinians see the West Bank as their own land. Many Israelis believe they have a right to build there. Here, you can see some Israelis breaking ground in a ceremony, a way of celebrating a construction startup. This issue of West Bank settlements is a major sticking point between Palestinians and Israelis. The United States is trying to get them to come together to discuss peace in the Middle East, an end to decades of conflict. But the Palestinians have said if the Israelis resume building settlements, that may prompt2 Palestinians to leave the peace talks. An Israeli spokesman3 says the peace talks should continue regardless of what goes on with the settlements.

 

Well, what you see at the end of this crane4 may look like a space capsule, or a rocket. To 33 trapped Chilean miners5, it could mean freedom. This is the cage set to pull the miners who are stuck 2,300 feet underground, back up to the surface. It arrived at the site of the collapsed6 mine yesterday and before it can be used, officials need to drill a hole wide enough for the capsule to travel to the miners, and then haul7 them out. They're hoping to have that done by early November. As of right now, the miners have set a record for the most time anyone has survived in a mine, more than 50 days and counting.
