Opposition leader Tzipi Livni accepted an invitation from UK Foreign Secretary William Hague to visit England this week, a Kadima spokesman said Sunday.

The invitation follows 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 had not visited the UK since a warrant was issued for her arrest nearly two years ago.
