The UN’s Jan Egeland:

I also clearly see that Hezbollah is trying to blend into the civilian population in too many places and they bear also a heavy responsibility for this.

Meanwhile, the UN itself has been blending in with East Timor’s civilian population, as the Age’s Lindsay Murdoch reports:

United Nations peacekeepers have abandoned at least 20 babies fathered with poverty-stricken Timorese women.

A UN investigation has also uncovered a culture of cover-up, in which babies born to peacekeepers and sex crimes committed by UN staff in the past seven years have been kept secret because of a “fear of shame and embarrassment’ in the deeply religious country.

The findings will shock the UN bureaucracy as it prepares to boost by thousands its peacekeeping force in East Timor.

Whoa! Lock up your womenfolk, East Timor. Kofi Annan’s elite UN pants brigade is on its way!
