Trump's Jerusalem calls spark warnings from Arab leaders


Arab leaders have warned US President Donald Trump that moving the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem could have dangerous repercussions.

Saudi Arabia's King Salman told the US leader that any such move would provoke Muslims around the world. The calls came amid speculation that Mr Trump could recognise Jerusalem as Israel's capital today.
