The head of the UN agency for Palestinian refugees has submitted his resignation following an internal probe into alleged mismanagement at the organization, reported AFP.

United Nations Spokesman Stephane Dujarric said on Wednesday, November 6, that the UNRWA’s Commissioner-General Pierre Krahenbuhl has informed the UN Secretary General of his resignation. 

The UN has previously said that Krahenbuhl had been placed on administrative leave since the launching of the probe.
