Palestinians concede that bid for U.N. statehood will fail

Palestinian officials admitted Thursday that their bid for statehood in the United Nations in all likelihood has failed. A U.N. Security Council committee that's been considering the Palestinian application for recognition as a member state is expected to issue a final statement Friday saying that it had been unable to muster majority support for the bid. The committee released a draft statement earlier this week that made the same point.
