Egypt has suddenly delayed a vote on its UN resolution condemning Israeli settlements in the West Bank as Donald Trump made his opposition clear.

A US official said that it had been considering an abstention, which would have allowed the motion to pass.

Israel then contacted Donald Trump's transition team to intervene, an Israeli official told Reuters.

Egypt's resolution called for Israel to stop building new settlements, which it said breached international law.
