Washington's top diplomat wrapped up a lightning visit to Israel on Tuesday but was expected to return within 24 hours as speculation grew that a jailed US-Israeli spy could be key to extending peace talks.

After flying in from Paris on Monday evening, US Secretary of State John Kerry met for two hours with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu before entering talks with Palestinian negotiators at his Jerusalem hotel.

Early on Tuesday, he met a second time with Netanyahu for two hours, with sources close to the talks saying they discussed a deal to free Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard as a way of breaking the logjam in the negotiations.
