'Regretful' UNHRC postpones Israel's review over boycott

The United Nations Human Rights Council postponed its periodic review of Israel's human rights record on Tuesday, after Jerusalem said it would boycott the proceedings due to what it perceives as a bias against it.
The Council stated that the review would take place no later than November 2013, and urged president Remigiusz Henczel to "take all appropriate steps and measures, in accordance with his mandate, to urge the State under Review to resume its cooperation with the Universal Periodic Review mechanism." It also expressed "regret" at Israel's boycott.
