Media www.rajawalisiber.com – Comments to the media by António Guterres, United Nations Secretary-General, on the situation in the Middle East, following Security Council consultations.

Question: Secretary General, could we get a comment from you on the journalist in southern Lebanon who was struck? There was a Reuters journalist who was killed in southern Lebanon and several journalists from AFP and Al-Jazeera who were injured.

Secretary-General: I want to say how much this demonstrates the enormous risk of spillover of this conflict, namely in relation to Lebanon.

And I want to pay tribute to the journalists that so many, unfortunately, the largest number ever last year, so many journalists are paying with their lives.

The work they do, to bring truth to everybody in the world and I present to their families my deepest condolences.
