Mismanagement in the administration of an international court set up by the U.N. to prosecute war criminals in Rwanda has hampered the investigation of the 1994 genocide there, a report released Wednesday said. The U.N. inspector general uncovered faulty accounting practices, hiring of unqualified applicants, widespread disregard of U.N. regulations and feuding among top officials at the tribunal's administrative headquarters in Arusha, Tanzania. It also cited neglect of the problems by U.N.

"Good storytelling is a very strong tool to change the attitudes and minds of people," Ban recalled in an interview.

The family of Leon Klinghoffer sued the Palestine Liberation Organization and the owners of the cruise ship Achille Lauro on Wednesday for $1.5 billion for his "wanton and coldblooded murder." Klinghoffer, 69, a wheelchair-bound stroke victim who owned wholesale appliance stores, was shot to death Oct. 8 while aboard the hijacked Italian liner with his wife, Marilyn. The suits were filed in federal district and New York state courts.
