Israel invites UN war crimes envoy amid Gaza furore

The move comes after Mr Goldstone retracted key findings of his UN report which accused Israel of targeting civilians during its 22-day offensive in the Gaza Strip two years ago. The South African jurist, who is Jewish, had been vilified in Israel over the report’s findings.
