The UN Human Relief Commission in Lebanon had a warehouse just chock full of valuable , readily marketable "emergency supplies" . Following the recent Israeli/Hez'bollah conflict in Lebanon , it was clear the UN was going to have to hand out some of those supplies - something the UN is not fond of doing.
(The UN much prefers to use USAID supplies and claim them as "UN - supplied aid" - as they did , following the big tsunami.)
Unfortunately, push came to shove, and the UN had to open up its warehouse.
Guess what ? There was "some sort of accident", and the warehouse caught fire.
Cynics might wonder about the actual quantity of goods in that warehouse before the fire - given the "sticky fingers" of many UN officials ; but we know the UN is pure of heart and would never engage in such shenanigans !
Gee, where did everybody go ?
