Student Union opens ‘hasbara’ room in effort to fill public diplomacy vacuum.
The missing United Nations Interim Forces in Lebanon (UNIFIL) legal adviser Carl Campeau, who was reported to be kidnapped, is a Canadian, according to sources quoted by the Times of Israel.
He originally was thought to be from Austria and reportedly was kidnapped nearly three weeks ago from an outpost near the Golan Heights border.
It is not known who kidnapped the legal adviser, where he was taken and if there has been any contact with him or his captors.
The UN has confirmed that one of its officers is missing, and Canadian Embassy told the newspaper, “We are pursuing all appropriate channels to seek further information.” Canada did not confirm that Campeau is the missing officer.
