UN Official Breaks Down as He Discusses Gaza Crisis


UN official Chris Gunness broke down in tears while filming an Al-Jazeera interview on July 30, after a UN school, sheltering thousands of displaced Palestinians, was shelled. Gunness is a spokesman for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) and was discussing the “appalling” denial of rights for Palestinians when he broke down in tears.

Gunness’s appearance has struck a chord with many viewers, perhaps because, as he tweeted himself, “There are times when tears speak more eloquently than words.” Credit: Al-Jazeera
