Jimmy Carter's Middle East tour - 18 April 08

He's been villified at home for meeting the leader of a group, the US calls a terrorist organisation.

However, Jimmy Carter, the former US President, sat down for talks with the political leader of Hamas, Khaled Meshaal in Damascus.

Carter, who won a Nobel Prize for negotiating peace between Israel and Egypt, holds no official power, but he is an influential voice.

Al Jazeera's Clayton Swisher reports from Damascus.
