    US President Barack Obama is now in Ramallah in the West Bank to meet Palestinian Authority leaders on the second day of his trip to the Middle East.

    This morning Mr Obama saw the Dead Sea Scrolls at the Israel Museum, accompanied by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

    He then flew to Ramallah, where he was due to meet PA President Mahmoud Abbas, Prime Minister Salam Fayyad and other Palestinian ministers.

    Back in Jerusalem, students and press were already queuing outside the Jerusalem Convention Centre where Mr Obama is due to speak in five hours' time.

    While the President’s visit is keeping to schedule, it has not been a quiet morning in Israel. Sirens sounded in the early hours in southern Israel as the launch of four rockets from Gaza were detected. Two of the rockets exploded in the Israeli town of Sderot, with damage caused to a house. The other two landed in Gaza. No one has been reported as injured.
