UN expert: World Court should opine on Israel

The UN's expert on human rights in the Palestinian territories said that if renewed peace talks fail, the General Assembly should seek an opinion from the International Court of Justice on the legal consequences of Israel's occupation of land claimed by the Palestinians.


Special rapporteur Richard Falk made the recommendation to the General Assembly's human rights committee on Tuesday. He called Israel's occupation "an affront to international law." (AP)
