At UN, ECOWAS to Raise Mali on June 15, Sudan Spin, Jonglei Cover Up?

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, June 12 -- After a long post-coup lull, this week the UN Security Council will hear about Mali on June 13 from the African Union Peace and Security Council, then on Friday June 15 from ECOWAS, a well placed UN Security Council source exclusively told Inner City Press on June 12.

  From Burkina Faso, Djibril Bassole is slated to come, diplomats told Inner City Press. Meanwhile as the Security Council met Tuesday afternoon about Iran, Sudanese diplomats went in and out of the Council, telling Inner City Press they were "briefing" Council members about, among other things, the break down in the talks with South Sudan in Addis Ababa.

  Inner City Press asked outgoing Children and Armed Conflict expert Radhika Coomaraswamy Tuesday at noon why the hundreds of youths with guns who clashed early in this year in South Sudan's Jonglei State, mostly around Pibor, were not listed as child soldier recruiters.

   Coomaraswamy said that the UN doesn't view what happened as an armed conflict -- which seems strange, given that it was defined ethnic groups, with guns, marching and killing each other.

   UNMISS boss Hilde Johnson told Inner City Press long ago that she was about to release the UN's report on Pibor and how many people died there. But nothing has been released. Might the PSC bring it up? Watch this site.
