Warrant strains Israel-UK ties

Israel PM says warrant for arrest of former foreign minister is an "absurdity".

    The UK government has denounced an arrest warrant against Tzipi Livni, the former Israeli foreign minister.

    On Sunday, a UK court issued the warrant against Livni for her role in alleged war crimes during the War on Gaza. The Israeli government has criticised the move. 

    Britain's foreign office says it is investigating the incident which is straining relations between the two countries.
