    US Vice President Mike Pence is on his way to the Middle East for a three-day trip to discuss moving the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

    The decision has provoked international anger.

    Pence will go to Egypt, Jordan and spend two days in Israel where he will address the parliament.

    The Palestinians have made it clear he is not welcome.
