Liane Hansen talks to Brian Urquhart, former undersecretary-general of the United Nations, about the U.N. committee that has been formed to carry out a fact-finding mission in the West Bank city of Jenin. He talks about the history of fact-finding missions in Israel, and says the country should have nothing to fear from the team that's been assembled to investigate the Israeli attack on Jenin. (4:30) NPR provides extended Mideast coverage.
