Palestinian Authority becomes 123rd member of International Criminal Court

  • The Palestinian Authority is now a member of the International Criminal Court (ICC). The historic event is being marked by a ceremony at the headquarters of the court.

    The founding treaty of the ICC was signed by the Palestinian Authority earlier this year, and it became effective on April 1.

    The development is being seen by some activists as a means to bring a measure of accountability to the conflict involving Israel.
