UK: Police attempt to question Tzipi Livni over Gaza war crimes allegations

The Telegraph/AFP report:

Israel condemns British police attempt to question Tzipi Livni over Gaza war crimes allegation.
Israel's former foreign minister Tzipi Livni was summoned for questioning by British police this week over suspicions of war crimes in Gaza, according to Israeli officials.

She received a letter on Thursday but the matter was dropped after talks between the two countries, according to media reports.

However, Israel's foreign ministry condemned the request, which it said it viewed with "great concern".
"We would have expected different behaviour from a close ally such as the UK," it said in a statement.

The reaction came after Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported that Ms Livni had received a request last week for an interview from Scotland Yard's war crimes unit ahead of her visit to London for a conference.
