Hoda Elturk, a United Nations Relief and Works Agency worker in Lebanon, was in a U.N. convoy that was attacked Tuesday while delivering aid to a Palestinian refugee camp in Tripoli.

Thousands of Palestinians have fled the Nahr el-Bared camp, where the Lebanese army and Islamic militants have been fighting for days.

Elturk talks about the violence at the camp with Alex Cohen.
