David Ward, a Liberal Democrat MP who made a comment about the Jews in Israel "inflicting atrocities on Palestinians," is summoned again by his party.

The meeting comes after party members met with Jewish leaders who demanded action.

Despite his apology and offer to reword his sentence by changing it into "the Jewish community," the Board of Deputies of British Jews has pushed for action, claiming his apology had "no credibility".

The party said "further decisions" would be taken about David Ward, MP for Bradford East. - David Ward Lib Dem MP summoned again over Israel comment
