Marking 10th Anniversary of Srebrenica Massacre

Secretary-General's Chief of Staff to Mark 10th Anniversary of Srebrenica Massacre

New York, Jul 6 2005 4:00PM

As part of the United Nations commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the fall of Srebrenica, Mark Malloch Brown, Secretary-General Kofi Annan's Chief of Staff, next week will head to the town that was the site of a massacre of Muslim men and boys by Bosnian Serb forces after they took over the town designated by the Security Council as a "safe area."

Mr. Malloch Brown will arrive in Srebrenica on 11 July, to attend a ceremony where he will deliver a message on behalf of the Secretary-General.

Ahead of that solemn occasion, the Department of UN Peacekeeping Operations will host a discussion from 12:30 to 2pm in the Dag Hammarskjöld Auditorium, tomorrow in New York. Panellists will include, amongst others, Ambassador Diego Arria, former Venezuelan Ambassador to the UN, H.R.H. Prince Zeid Ra'ad Zeid Al-Hussein of Jordan, and Professor Samantha Power of the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy of Harvard University.
