Disappearance of incriminating tapes of UN assisting Islamic State


Journalist Serena Chehim had announced she was working on a report including videos showing the involvement of the World Food Programme in transporting jihadists of the Islamic Emirate (Daesh) between Turkey and Syria.

However, this story will never be released. The journalist died after her car was hit by a heavy vehicle on the Syrian border; her cameraman was seriously injured and the video tapes have vanished.

Serena Chehim was a dual Lebanese-US national. She worked for the Iranian news channel Press TV.
