About 200 employees airlifted from UN headquarters in Abidjan, which came under sustained attack from pro-Gbagbo forces

The Guardian Reports:
Around 200 UN staff are evacuating their base in Ivory Coast after coming under sustained attacks from forces loyal to president Laurent Gbagbo. The employees were flown by helicopter from their headquarters in Abidjan to the city’s airport, the Associated Press reported. Another helicopter will take them to the northern city of Bouake.

The UN saves it’s own while hundreds are being murdered in the streets. Do you think we will see the kind of Action from the UN and other global institutions like what we are seeing in Libya? This is what Pres. Obama says the US does, we step in to prevent massacres. Fucking Hypocrites.
