A U.S. congressman withdrew an amendment that would condition U.S. funding of UNRWA on an independent audit. Rep. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), a member of the powerful foreign operations subcommittee of the U.S. House of Representatives, wanted to attach the amendment to the foreign operations bill due for consideration in coming weeks. He withdrew the amendment last week, instead offering a statement of his concerns last Friday, when the foreign operations subcommittee referred the bill to the full Appropriations Committee.
