The United States has frozen $125 million in funding for a U.N. agency that provides aid to Palestinian refugees, Axios news site reported on Friday, citing three unidentified Western diplomats.

The diplomats said funding, a third of the annual U.S. donation to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, was supposed to be delivered by Jan. 1 but was frozen until the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump finishes its review of U.S. aid to the Palestinian Authority, Axios reported.
