KEY OFFICIAL CONCEDES DIFFERENCES WITH U.S.

A senior Israeli Cabinet minister acknowledged today that serious differences exist between Israel and the United States over Jewish settlement expansion.

Justice Minister Tsipi Livni spoke a day after President Bush affirmed his support of the "roadmap for peace," which calls for a construction freeze.

Israeli officials last month confirmed plans to build 3,650 more homes in Ma'aleh Adumim on the West Bank.
