COP28 opens in Dubai with moment of silence for civilians killed in Israel-Hamas war

The UN’s COP28 climate summit in Dubai opens with a moment of silence for the victims of the Israel-Hamas war.

Sameh Shoukry, the Egyptian foreign minister who chaired the previous COP talks in Egypt last year, urges delegates to “stand for a moment of silence” in memory of two climate diplomats who recently died “as well as all civilians who have perished during the current conflict in Gaza.”
