'Dangerous and unacceptable': Arab League condemns US move

That's the reaction to Trump's declaration from the Arab League at an emergency session in the Egyptian capital Cairo, following Donald Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital on Wednesday.

The foreign ministerial-level meeting of Arab states follows criticism of the US president's move by governments around the world, and widespread protests in several countries.

The Arab leaders also said US action is illegal according to international law.
