Ten UN staff members killed in Algiers

Ten U.N. staff members were killed in a car bombing attack at the global body's offices in Algiers on Tuesday, a spokesman said.

Jean Fabre of the U.N. Development Program said it was still unknown who died or which U.N. agencies they represented. Fabre said he received the information from Marc Destanne De Bernis, the agency's top official in the Algerian capital.

The explosion occurred around 9:30 a.m. (0830 GMT) and blew off the front of the U.N. refugee agency building, UNHCR chief spokesman Ron Redmond said.

It apparently caused even worse damage to the main U.N. building housing the U.N. Development Program and other agencies diagonally across the street.

The attack recalled the Aug. 19, 2003, attack on U.N. headquarters in Baghdad with a truck bomb that killed top U.N. envoy Sergio Vieira de Mello, and 21 others.

Russia gets rid of world’s most powerful nuclear submarines

The United States' Head of Diplomacy, or Secretary of State, is an anachronistic, incompetent, meddling, intrusive, insolent and arrogant, rude individual, a brash, foul-mouthed upstart, a conceited, self-important guttersnipe and an insult to the international community, as fit for the job as a pedophile janitor in a grade school.
