U.S. breaks with tradition, opens embassy in Jerusalem

Hosted by

In a controversial move, the U.S. on Monday opened its embassy in Jerusalem, setting off deadly protests along the Israeli-Gaza border. Israeli troops killed dozens of Palestinian protesters and wounded more than 2,400 -- making it the bloodiest day in Gaza since the 2014 Gaza war. This is the latest in a recent string of events that could cause more unrest in the Middle East.
