IN MEMORY OF SERGIO VIEIRA DE MELLO (1948-2003)
The UN representative to Iraq, a career diplomat, Brazilian by born was the star of UN. His impressive career record can be found here. Yesterday another suicide bombing incident claimed the lives of De Mello & almost 20 other UN workers in Baghdad. Many are injured and trapped in the destroyed building. I was watching the horrifying scenes on BBC & CNN, which was caught on a camera covering a press conference when the bomb hit the building.
Another suicide bombing incident ripped through a Bus in Jerusalem claiming 7 and injuring 50 others. Children were not spared.
I condemn all the barbarians who masterminded both the attack on UN and civilians. This is the time when countries like Saudi Arab should take drastic measures to stop all the funding to extremist fundamentalist organizations so that they cannot do more harm to civic society.
