Foreign aid workers feeding starving people are the latest to be killed in Israel’s war on Gaza. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the deadly airstrike a “tragic accident,” which “happens in war,” and vowed to investigate. The seven who lost their lives worked for famed chef Jose Andres’ organization World Central Kitchen, they came from all over the world to help – Poland, Canada, Australia, the UK. One was Palestinian. As United Nations Humanitarian Chief Martin Griffiths has been a key figure in pressing for vital aid to Gaza. After three years in the role, advocating and acting all over the world’s conflict zones, he is stepping down in June due to ill health. His career with the UN, the British diplomatic service and many humanitarian organizations spanned decades. Martin Griffiths joined the program from Geneva, in his first interview since announcing his retirement from the UN.  Also on today's show: Evgenia Kara-Murza, Wife of jailed Russian Opposition Figure Vladimir Kara-Murza; Stephen Breyer, Retired Supreme Court Justice  Learn more about your ad choices.
