LONDON (REUTERS) - Britain has no plans to move its Israel embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and still disagrees with the US decision to do so, Prime Minister Theresa May's spokesman said on Monday (May 14).

He was speaking on a day when the United States was due to open its embassy in Jerusalem, an event that has led to Palestinian protests.

Israeli gunfire killed two Palestinians and wounded at least 35 other protesters along the Gaza border on Monday, health officials said.
