Hours after a video of a UN car, where an employee was spotted having sex in the back seat went viral, UN officials rushed to issue a statement in which they expressed "their shock and disruption."

The video taken in Tel Aviv shows a UN official car with a driver and an employee who appears to have had paid a sex worker to join him in the back seat as the car moved down the road.

According to UN officials commenting on the video, the employee appearing in the video is believed to be a member of its Jerusalem-based Truce Supervision Organization (UNTSO).

Despite UN official's pledge to an immediate investigation into the incident that took place in one of its vehicles, online commentators widely shared the video demanding an end to what they described "long record of corruption" on the international organization's part.

Some social media users expressed they worry that the girl might be an underage sex worker, pointing at similar sexual exploitation scandals that were revealed in 2016 in relevance to UN delegations in the Central African Republic.

However, some comments stressed the need to not hold the whole international body accountable for the actions of a few of its employees, highlighting the humanitarian work the UN does in development and support of war-torn regions in terms of education, health, and peacekeeping.
