    PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — The old lady crawls in the dirt, wailing for her pills. The elderly man lies motionless as rats pick at his overflowing diaper. There is no food, water or medicine for the 85 surviving residents of the Port-au-Prince Municipal Nursing Home, barely a mile from the airport where a massive international aid effort is taking shape. "Help us, help us," 69-year-old Mari-Ange Levee begged Sunday, lying on the ground with a broken leg and ribs. A cluster of flies swarmed the open fracture in her skull. One man has already died, and administrator Jean Emmanuel said more...

Security Council resolution aimed at ending the fighting between Israel and Lebanese Hezbollah guerrillas, U.S. Ambassador John Bolton said. Bolton refused to comment on the text, but an official with knowledge of the document said the draft calls for a “full cessation of violence” between Israel and Hezbollah, but would allow Israel the right to launch strikes if Hezbollah attacks it.

    UN envoy attacks Israel over Gaza Israel has ordered its army to widen its operations An emergency meeting of the UN's new human rights body on the Gaza crisis has heard condemnation of Israeli policy and its effects on civilians.

But Israel, which threatens to broaden military action, said the Human Rights Council was ignoring its concerns. The meeting was called by Muslim states with support from Russia and others. UN aid agencies warn of a...

    THE United Nations is investigating about 150 allegations of sexual abuse by UN civilian staff and soldiers in the Congo, some of them recorded on videotape, a senior UN official said today. The accusations include pedophilia, rape and prostitution, said Jane Holl Lute, an assistant secretary-general in the peacekeeping department. Ms Lute, an American, said there was photographic and video evidence for some of the allegations and most of the allegations came to light since the spring. "We are shining a light on this problem in order to determine its scope, and we will not stop there," Ms Lute told...

    In a stunning about-face, the New York Times reported Sunday that when the U.S. attacked Iraq in March 2003, Saddam Hussein possessed "stockpiles of monitored chemicals and materials," as well as sophisticated equipment to manufacture nuclear and biological weapons, which was removed to "a neighboring state" before the U.S. could secure the weapons sites. The U.N.'s Monitoring, Verification and Inspection Commission [Unmovic], "has filed regular reports to the Security Council since last May," the paper said, "about the dismantlement of important weapons installations and "the export of dangerous materials to foreign states." "Officials of the commission and the [International] Atomic...

    Former Cabinet minister Clare Short has criticised the US-led tsunami aid coalition, saying the UN should be leading efforts. President Bush has announced that an alliance of the US, India, Australia and Japan will co-ordinate a humanitarian drive. But Ms Short said the effect of the parallel coalition would be to undermine the UN. She said only the UN had the "moral authority" to lead the relief work. Ms Short resigned as international development secretary over the Iraq war. "I think this initiative from America to set up four countries claiming to co-ordinate sounds like yet another attempt to undermine...

    A federal judge in Washington has upheld the right of the American military to place its personnel under United Nations command and force those soldiers to wear insignia designed by the world body. The ruling from Judge Paul Friedman came in the case of a former Army specialist, Michael New, who resisted orders that he serve in a U.N. peacekeeping mission in Macedonia nearly a decade ago. He also refused, during unit muster in 1995, to wear the light blue U.N. cap and shoulder patch. Mr. New was court-martialed for failing to obey the order to don the cap and...

    The United Nations has called for an investigation into a series of alleged abuses in the Iraqi city of Fallujah. Human rights official Louise Arbour said those responsible for any violations should be brought to justice. Controversy over the Fallujah offensive was fuelled by video footage showing a US Marine shooting dead a wounded and unarmed Iraqi. The pictures showed some marines entering the mosque on Saturday. The marine, who has since been taken off battlefield duty, is seen standing above a figure slumped against a wall aiming his rifle at the man's body. "He's f****** faking he's dead," the...

  • U.S. expected to win backing at U.N.

    UNITED NATIONS, Feb. 24 — The challenge is formidable, but U.S. and British diplomats are confident they can wring the nine votes necessary to win approval of the new Iraq resolution circulated Monday on the Security Council. The assessment is backed by other diplomats, although all agree that France, the most outspoken opponent as of now, could still use its veto power to kill the measure. UNDER THE U.N. charter, a resolution requires nine “yes” votes among the 15 Security Council members, and cannot be vetoed by the five permanent council members — Britain, China, France, Russia and the United...
