    Israel arrests 13 UN employees during conflict
    06 October 2004

    JERUSALEM: Israel has arrested at least 13 Palestinian UN employees during the past four years of conflict, the army said.

    Israel revealed the arrests amid a row with the United Nations agency that cares for Palestinian refugees in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.

    "It's not like they were arrested today. They are among all the people arrested in the course of the conflict (since the start of a 4-year-old Palestinian uprising)," Captain Jacob Dallal said. "Some may be held and some may not."

    In New York, UN spokeswoman Marie Okabe said the world body had no information on the arrests.

    An Israeli officer earlier said 13 employees of the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) had been arrested and Israel planned to indict them for "suspected links to terrorism".

    "We have a general concern about UNRWA, about the use of its property and some of its members," said Dallal.

    The comments came after Israel backed away from an accusation that Palestinian militants had used a UN ambulance in Gaza to transport a rocket to be fired at Israel.
