UN spokesman Chris Guinness breaks down talking about Israel’s genocide of Palestinians

Mr Gunness, a former BBC reporter now working for the UN’s Relief and Works Agency, had spent the day examining evidence and describing yet another attack on one of its sites.

Israeli tank shells had slammed into a school sheltering some 3,300 homeless Gazans, killing 16 refugees - including children - and staff, provoking world wide horror.

Mr Gunness condemned the attack, ending: “The rights of Palestinians - even their children - are wholesale denied. And it’s appalling.”

For a moment, he keeps his cool. He blinks hard and looks relieved the interview has ended.

He squeezes out a brief thank you to his interviewer, saying “My pleasure” in a shaky voice.

Then it is all too much. He presses his hand to his eyes and breaks into sobs.

A colleague rushes to comfort him as the camera is pushed away, while the sound of wailing anguish grows.
