The UN General Assembly has voted to grant the Palestinians non-member observer state status - a move opposed by Israel and the US.

Israel's ambassador to the UN, Ron Prosor, said the bid "doesn't advance peace - it pushes it backwards"

Mr Prosor said the only way to achieve peace was through negotiation.
