US Secretary of State John Kerry met Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas on Saturday on a mission to quell more than three weeks of deadly Israeli-Palestinian violence.

Kerry, who held talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in Berlin on Thursday, met Abbas in Amman, where he was also due to meet Jordan's King Abdullah II, custodian of Jerusalem's Al-Aqsa mosque compound which has been the focal point of the unrest.
