• RT

The Red Cross announced on Friday that the disgraced former head of the UN's agency for Palestine, Pierre Krahenbuhl, will take over as director-general of the organization. Krahenbuhl was ousted from the middle-eastern role amid allegations of sexual misconduct, nepotism, and other abuses of authority.

"The Assembly of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has appointed Pierre Krahenbuhl as the organization's next director-general," it said in a statement. "He is recognized as a strategic and purpose-driven leader with deep organizational experience and dedication to the ICRC."
