Former Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni has described an arrest warrant issued against her as "an abuse of the British legal system".

It is the first time a UK court has issued a warrant for the arrest of a former Israeli minister.

The warrant, granted by a London court on Saturday, was revoked on Monday when it was found Ms Livni was not visiting the UK.
