Guatemala opens Israel embassy in Jerusalem after US move

JERUSALEM, May 16, 2018 (BSS/AFP) - Guatemala inaugurated its Israel embassy in Jerusalem on Wednesday, becoming the first country to follow in the footsteps of the United States' deeply controversial move.

Israeli and Guatemalan officials were attending an inauguration ceremony at the new embassy at an office park in the disputed city at the heart of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
