US walking away from UN rights forum

The United States has quietly informed Western allies of its intention to walk away from the UN Human Rights Council, diplomatic sources said on Friday.


Diplomatic sources and rights activists said that US officials had informed the European Union on Friday morning of its intention to halt its involvement in the Council. "They said they were going to disengage totally," said one representative of a rights watchdog group. (Reuters)
