    US concerned over Israel's West Bank wall

    US President George W Bush has said the security barricade being built by Israel in the West Bank could disrupt the creation of a Palestinian state.

    Work started on the 350 kilometre barrier last June.

    Speaking at his ranch in Crawford Texas, Mr Bush said the barrier was a response to the days when there was terror in the region.

    He said the construction of the sections of the fence would be a problem because it makes it difficult to create a continuous area that would constitute a Palestinian state.

    Israel is examining US concerns and according to media sources has agreed not to construct segments Washington is concerned about.

    Earlier this week US officials said an option for pressuring Israel was to reduce $US9 billion dollars in loan guarantees intended for housing projects.
