India turns to UN in diplomat row with US

Published: 12.21.13, 07:43 / Israel News

India asked the United Nations on Friday to accredit a New York-based diplomat who was arrested for visa fraud, in an apparent attempt to defuse a crisis with the United States over her treatment by US authorities who strip searched her.

 

A UN spokesman said the organization had received an official request from New Delhi to accredit Devyani Khobragade as a member of India's permanent UN mission in what seemed to be a move to give her a stronger form of diplomatic immunity. (Reuters)
