Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has signed papers to join the International Criminal Court.

He signed the Rome Statute, the ICC's founding treaty, at a Ramallah meeting.

Membership could see the Palestinians pursue Israel on war crimes charges, and the move was quickly condemned by Israel's prime minister.

It follows the rejection of a UN Security Council resolution demanding an end to the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories by late 2017.
