Egeland denounces Israel's late-stage shelling of Lebanon as 'immoral'
The UN humanitarian chief on Wednesday accused Israel of "shocking" and "completely immoral" behavior in its war against Hizbullah for dropping large numbers of cluster bombs when a ceasefire was in sight.

 

Jan Egeland told a news briefing that that Israel had either made a "terribly wrong decision" or had "started thinking afterwards." The remarks were unusually harsh even for Egeland, who often violates an unwritten rule that UN officials should not criticize member states too severely. (AP)
