WASHINGTON - Some US lawmakers demanded an immediate cutoff of US funds to UNESCO on Monday after the UN cultural agency voted to grant the Palestinians full membership.

The Obama administration said the UNESCO vote was a distraction from the quest for Middle East peace.

"Today's vote distracts us from our shared goal of direct negotiations that result in a secure Israel and an independent Palestine living side by side in peace and security," said White House spokesman Jay Carney.
