U.N. offers free tours

UNITED NATIONS: In an effort to increase awareness among the people of its work, the United Nations has offered nearly 9,000 free Sunday tours to its headquarters in New York coinciding with the celebration of the 60th anniversary of its foundation. "With the support of the U.N. Foundations, 8,700 visitors — three times the number we would normally have expected on Sundays in June — now know more about the U.N.," Under Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information Shashi Tharoor said. "This promotion was a wonderful start to our anniversary year... People emerged from the tours with a better understanding of how the United Nations tackles pressing issues and promotes global understanding,'' he said. — PTI
