Trump administration plan to label human rights groups 'antisemitic' provokes outrage

A number of human rights organisations have hit back at threats by the Trump administration to have them branded antisemitic due to their reporting on abuses by Israel.

Amnesty International said the US government was attempting to "silence and intimidate international human rights organisations", following a report in Politico that officials were on the verge of applying the antisemitic label to several organisations - including Amnesty, Oxfam and Human Rights Watch - and enouraging governments not to work with them.
