How They Voted
Palestine Granted Full Unesco Membership


Video

The UN cultural and educational agency Unesco has granted Palestine full membership in a move that Israel and the United States say could harm Middle East peace efforts. Delegates approved the membership by 107 votes to 14. 'Long live Palestine!' shouted one delegate, in French, at the meeting of Unesco's general conference.

Amid loud applause and cheers for yes votes, Unesco members vote one-by-one on whether to allow Palestinians full membership to the cultural agency.
