U.S. special envoy to the Middle East George Mitchell will return to the region this month as the United States works to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Tuesday.

"This is the first of what will be an ongoing high level of engagement by Senator Mitchell," said Clinton at a joint news briefing with Mitchell, who just returned from talks with Israelis and the Palestinians in a bid to shore up a ceasefire in Hamas-ruled Gaza.
