Biden criticises 'failure to condemn' Palestinian terror attacks

US Vice President Joe Biden on Wednesday implicitly criticized Palestinian Authority leaders for not condemning attacks against Israelis, as an upsurge in violence marred his visit, AFP reports.

"The United States of America condemns these acts and condemns the failure to condemn these acts," Biden said after meeting Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. "The kind of violence we saw yesterday, the failure to condemn it, the rhetoric that incites that violence, the retribution that it generates, has to stop."
