The United Nations said it has launched investigation into a viral video showing a couple having sex in one of its official cars in Israel.
Spokesman of the Secretary-General, Mr Stephane Dujarric, told UN correspondents in New York on Friday that the organisation was “shocked and deeply disturbed” by the footage.
Dujarric confirmed that the video featured a 4 by 4 vehicle, containing personnel “likely assigned to the UN Truce Supervision Organisation”.
The short video showed a woman in a red dress straddling a man in the back seat of the white SUV bearing the “UN” inscription.
With them in the moving vehicle are the driver and a bald-head man sitting on the passenger side in front.
Media reports have it that the footage was recorded on HaYarkon Street, a major thoroughfare in Tel Aviv, the Israeli capital, although the UN said its authenticity had not been confirmed.
Dujarric said, “We are shocked and deeply disturbed by what is seen on the video.
