UN approves Palestinian rights NGO that Israel says is linked to Hamas

A group that Israel says is linked to Hamas was approved for accreditation Monday by the United Nations.
Israel created a resolution to stop the London-based Palestinian Return Center's accreditation, which the UN committee overseeing non-governmental organizations in the UN held a vote Monday.
According to the Israel Radio report, 13 countries supported Israel's resolution against the PRC, including the United States, Germany and most European countries. However, the resolution failed because 16 countries voted against the resolution and 18 abstained.
