UN, NGO and General News Round-UP

A United Nations team will head to the Horn of Africa next week to explore how the world body can support the African Union (AU) peacekeeping force in Somalia, which has seen an upsurge in violence in recent months despite the signing of a UN-facilitated peace accord last June. The team, which includes the UN Deputy Special Representative for Somalia, Charles Petrie, as well as representatives from UN Political Office for Somalia (UNPOS) and the departments of peacekeeping, field support and political affairs at UN Headquarters in New York, will hold talks in Nairobi and Addis Ababa.
