Hmm, could it be the odor was a big, steaming pile of bullcrap? And seriously, the children are moved across the street, but the adults are told to leave the area? That is MESSED UP. Talk about twisted priorities.
There was some rotten business at the UN this morning. Diplomats were evacuated from the UN Security Council and General Assembly for a "suspicious odor" likely the result of a burst sewer line, officials said. The sewage-like smell wafted through the halls forcing the diplomats – who often metaphorically hold their noses during their daily deal-making – to really cover their olfactory glands. UN spokesman Farhan Haq said the evacuation was a "precautionary measure" and no one reported any illness. The leak is believed to have occurred in the UN basement and police source said it was a faulty "sewer pipe." AFP/Getty Images The United Nations building was evacuated after a rancid smell. The evacuation interrupted a ceremonial session at the Security Council where children from around the world were afforded an opportunity to voice their concerns to the world powers. Those kids were sent to the US mission located across the street.
