US judge Mary McGowan Davis appointed head of UN Gaza inquiry

President of the UN Human Rights Council Joachim Ruecker appointed US judge Mary McGowan Davis on Tuesday as the new head of the UN inquiry into Operation Protective Edge.

Judge Davis will replace Professor William Schabas who quit the position on Monday, after Israel provided information that revealed Schabas had served as a paid consultant for the Palestinian Authority.
