Barak Arrives in Israel after Summit Collapse
Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak arrived in Israel on Wednesday afternoon following the collapse of the Camp David peace talks with the Palestinians.
Barak arrived to a red-carpet welcome from top officials with a military honor guard ceremony, and is expected later to make a public statement about the peace summit.
After coming home empty-handed after two weeks of marathon talks with Palestinian President Yasser Arafat, Barak will have to turn his attention to domestic problems and try to rebuild his government.
Barak has been without a majority government since the defection of three parties from his coalition government and faces right-wing accusations he made too many concessions to the Palestinians at the talks, particularly over Jerusalem -- BEN GURION AIRPORT, Israel (AFP)
