Team set up to probe UN guards' anti-Semitism

The United Nations appointed on Friday a special team to investigate two anti-Semitic incidents in its security department reported in the last few months. In one of the incidents, a security guard reportedly drew swastikas in the guards' log immediately prior to the end of his shift, before an Israeli guard came to replace him. In addition, an Israeli guard in the Vienna offices of the UN complained that one of her coworkers assaulted her. According to Israel Radio, UN sources said they would investigate whether the incident constituted anti-Semitic violence or sexual harassment.
