CAIRO (Reuters) - Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki said on Tuesday the United States was "attacking international law" after President Donald Trump's decision to halt all funding to U.N. Palestinian refugee agency UNRWA.

"The U.S. administration has begun to attack the Palestinian people and international law," Malki said at a meeting of the Arab League in Cairo convened to discuss the issue.
