BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany, France, Italy, Spain and Britain called on Israel on Monday not to raze the Bedouin village of Khan al-Ahmar in the occupied West Bank after Israel's top court last week cleared the way for its demolition.

The Palestinians say the tearing down of Khan al-Ahmar is part of an Israeli plan to create an arc of Jewish settlements that would effectively cut off East Jerusalem from the West Bank - areas Israel captured in a 1967 war and which Palestinians seek for a independent state.
