UN's Top Human Rights Official Warns Killing Civilians Could Be War Crime

UNITED NATIONS—The UN's top human rights official issued a strong warning yesterday that killings of innocent civilians in Lebanon and Israel could amount to war crimes.

"International humanitarian law is clear on the supreme obligation to protect civilians during hostilities," said UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Louise Arbour. "This obligation is also expressed in international criminal law, which defines war crimes and crimes against humanity."

Louise Arbour is a former Canadian Supreme Court Justice, and is former chief prosecutor in the Slobodan Milosevic war crimes trials.

Just what we need another warning from the useless,impotent U.N.And this dire warning comming from a former canadian supreme court justice,HA! blah,blah,blah.Why don'tyou stop yapping and actually do something for a change.While you're at it,make sure you put all the blame on Israel like you always do.

OK, then I assume the United Nations is going start up operations to arrest every member of hezbolla and hamas. Neither of these groups have EVER DONE ANYTHING BUT KILL CIVILIANS.
