UN official resigns over 'apartheid' report

Rima Khalaf, who heads the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), on Friday resigned from her post over the agency’s report accusing Israel of having established an “apartheid regime”, The Associated Press reported.

The report, which was published earlier this week, had drawn criticism from UN and Israeli officials, as well as from the United States’ Ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley.
