A State Department spokesman in Washington said US authorities were "deeply concerned" about the incident in which Jewish settlers threw stones at the cars of a US diplomatic delegation which came to inspect vandalism to nearby Palestinian-owned trees in the West Bank on Friday.

"We can confirm a vehicle from the Consulate General was pelted with stones and confronted by a group of armed settlers today in the West Bank, near the Palestinian village of Turmus Ayya," said the US State Department spokesman according to AFP.
