Samantha Power, the US ambassador to the UN has expressed her great sorrow after her motorcade moving at a fast speed, accidentally hit and killed a 7-year-old boy in Cameroon on Monday. Samantha Power was in the country to show US support for the campaign against Boko Haram.
Power said she met the boy’s family to offer profound condolences.
An armoured jeep knocked the boy as he tried to cross a road when the convoy was heading towards a refugee camp. Although he received immediate medical care from an ambulance in our convoy, he died shortly thereafter.
