At UN, Hours After Killings in Lower Manhattan, No Mention, Speeches On Other Topics

By Matthew Russell Lee, Periscope

UNITED NATIONS, October 31, updated – Three hours after at least eight people were killed in Lower Manhattan, at the UN on 42nd Street the Security Council was meeting, the end of an all day debate on Children and Armed Conflict. At the end Armenia, Israel and then Council President France, though its Deputy Ambassador Anne Gueguen: nothing about the killings, now nearly four hours before. Periscope here. The Council routinely “condemns in the strongest terms” terrorist attacks. From Washington, this: “From WH Press Sec Sarah Sanders: The President has been briefed on the incident in NYC by CoS Kelly and will be continually updated as more details are known.  Our Thoughts and prayers are with all those affected.” Then from Israel's Mission to the UN: “Israel's Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon expressed his condolences to US Ambassador Nikki Haley following the terror attack in New York: 'Just as the US has always stood by our side in our times of need, Israel will always stand with America in the fight against terror.  We send our condolences to the families of those killed and we wish a speedy recovery to those injured.” As it approached 7 pm, from the UNSC, nothing. Then at 7, Secretary General Antonio Guterres with this: "Our hearts go out to the people of our great host city; today all of us at UNHQ are New Yorkers." Meaning UN staff? Or those running the Security Council in UNHQ? Then the US State Department said, "The State Department is closely monitoring the situation. We are referring all questions about the investigation to the FBI and the New York Police Department.  We extend our condolences to the families of the victims and our prayers for recovery to those affected by this terrible act of terrorism in New York City."
