Goldstone Head of Fact Finding Mission on Gaza Conflict looks on during a session of the Human Rights Council at the UN in Geneva

Richard Goldstone, Head of Fact Finding Mission on Gaza Conflict looks on during a session of the Human Rights Council at the United Nations European headquarters in Geneva September 29, 2009. Goldstone, a former U.N. war crimes prosecutor who led a U.N. inquiry into the Gaza conflict, called on Israeli and Hamas authorities to conduct open and credible investigations into atrocities during their December-January war in the strip. A lack of accountability for war crimes committed in the Middle East has reached “crisis point”, undermining any hope for peace in the region, the U.N. human rights investigator charged on Tuesday.
