U.S. withdraws from UN Human Rights Council

United Nations: The United States has withdrawn from the United Nations Human Rights Council, accusing it as biased against Israel.

The decision to pull out of the UN Human Rights Council was jointly announced by US secretary of state Mike Pompeo and U.S. ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley in Washington.

The move has been criticised by human rights groups and described as regrettable by foreign leaders.
