The US has pulled out of the United Nations Human Rights Council, calling it a “cesspool of political bias”.
Nikki Haley, the US envoy to the UN, said it was a “hypocritical” body that “makes a mockery of human rights”.
Formed in 2006, the Geneva-based council has faced criticism in the past for allowing member countries with questionable human rights records.
But activists said the US move could hurt efforts to monitor and address human rights abuses around the world.
