Security Council Drops Hunt for Somali Warlord

UNITED NATIONS — The Security Council on Tuesday called off the hunt for Somali warlord Mohammed Farah Aidid and set up a new special commission to investigate armed attacks against U.N. personnel in the African state.

All 15 members voted for a resolution that marked a change of direction in Somalia, backtracking from an arrest warrant that held Aidid responsible for the June slaying of 24 Pakistani peacekeepers.

In practice, the hunt for Aidid stopped after President Clinton reversed U.S. policy last month.
