Mitchell says Mideast peace will require renewed confidence

St. Louis – Former U.S. Senator George Mitchell of Maine has experience with two of the most intractable conflicts in recent centuries - Northern Ireland and the Middle East.

He's in town Tuesday (Jan. 20) for Maryville University's St. Louis Speakers Series.

Mitchell told KWMU's Rachel Lippmann that ongoing fighting in Gaza leads many people to believe the conflict there cannot be resolved.
