Confusion over Livni warrant

British government seeks arrest of Israeli opposition leader who later cancels trip.



    A court in the UK has issued - and then cancelled - an arrest warrant against Israeli opposition leader Tzipi Livni.

    According to the Guardian newspaper, the warrant was issued at the request of lawyers representing pro-Palestinian activists and sought Livni's arrest on suspicion of war crimes related to last year's war on Gaza.
