To the idiots, they must know what UN say on their staff since long time ago.
These kind of stupid things happened under dictators or failed state .
“Let us pledge that we will not bow to those who seek to strike fear in our hearts
by savagely attacking colleagues who are in the field with only the best of intentions
for the communities they sought to serve.
Let us pledge to remember and support those colleagues who are, on a daily basis,
working in the face of very real dangers to their lives and health”

– UN Human Rights Chief, Navi Pillay
