Agent Molly O'Connor was at the United Nations to help with the evacuation of President Omar Hassan. He received Jack Bauer and Renee Walker, sent by CTU to lead the operation. O'Connor then explained to Renee the procedure they would follow while Jack talked with Hassan. They then headed to the underground tunnel that would lead them to their transport.As they got out of the tunnel, O'Connor was met by Agent Swofford, who told her that they weren't able to bring the transport closer due to a construction. They then started walking towards it, but in the middle of the way, Bauer ordered them to turn back after sensing something was wrong. As they were heading back to the tunnel, a team of mercenaries started shooting at them. O'Connor and her men returned fire while Renee took Hassan and his family away from danger.
As Jack sought cover with O'Connor, she convinced him to leave with Hassan as well. She then reloaded her weapon and ordered her remaining men to advance. She then headed towards the mercenaries herself while shooting at them to give Jack and Renee time.
