US embassy opens in Jerusalem

The United States has officially relocated its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, in a deeply controversial move that angered Palestinians and drew widespread international condemnation.

The ceremony on Monday took place amid road closures and heavy police presence in anticipation of Palestinian protests.

US President Donald Trump - who in December 2017 declared Jerusalem as Israel's capital, a move long-sought by Israel -  addressed the ceremony via a recorded video message.

The use of children in Sunday's brazen attacks stunned a country that has struggled with growing terrorist threats in recent years.
