UN to suspend work in Gaza

The United Nations said that it is being forced to suspend its humanitarian work in Gaza because of the Israeli fuel blockade.

A UN official said food aid to 650,000 refugees and the collection of sewage will have to stop today, if Israel does not allow in more vehicle fuel.

The UN Security Council met to discuss the crisis, but Western representatives walked out over comments from Libya.

They objected to the Libyan delegate likening Gaza to a Nazi death camp.
