The United Nations has reprimanded a security guard for drawing swastikas on a log sheet later seen by a guard from Israel, a UN spokesman said. The guard who drew the swastikas was issued a letter of reprimand and was asked to attend sensitivity training for the September incident, UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said Tuesday. A UN official speaking on condition of anonymity said the guard had also made Nazi-like salutes to his Israeli colleague. The official, who was not authorized to disclose the information publicly, said the guard was from Jamaica. The Israeli guard also was not identified. "The UN wants to see a work environment in which people of every race and religion can feel welcome, and these types of behaviors will be thoroughly investigated and dealt with," Dujarric said. He said senior managers in the UN Department of Safety and Security, which oversees the guards, had also been asked to attend sensitivity training.
