Opposition leader Tzipi Livni (Kadima) will fly to London on Wednesday, accepting an invitation from British Foreign Secretary William Hague.

Hague invited Livni after the British government's decision to change the controversial universal jurisdiction law, which was used by activists to obtain arrest warrants for alleged war crimes aimed at Israeli dignitaries such as Livni who visited the UK.

Livni will meet with the British foreign secretary and Labour Party members, as well as local Jewish community leaders and Jewish students working in Israeli advocacy in the UK.

The Kadima MK has not visited the UK since an arrest warrant was issued for her nearly two years ago.
