• Next UN chief must tackle migration


    UNITED NATIONS: The next UN Secretary-General must commit to a new global deal for refugees and to end the death penalty during his or her tenure, the world’s leading human rights groups said Monday. Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and four other groups also said the next UN chief should be prepared to invoke the UN charter to prevent and end mass atrocities such as targeting civilians in wars. The eight-point agenda by the rights groups was released just as candidates to succeed Ban Ki-moon prepare to address the UN General Assembly to lay out their vision and answer questions, a first in the UN’s 70-year history.
