U.N. Halts Rebuilding Over Safety Concerns

July 04, 2001|From Times Wire Reports

A United Nations plan to help Somalia's fledgling government rebuild has been put on hold because of security concerns, said David Stephen, the U.N. representative for Somalia.

A draft of the plan was to have been delivered by the end of April, but the March kidnapping of four U.N. employees in Mogadishu, the capital, halted the process, Stephen said.

The hostages were released unharmed by their captors, who oppose the government.
