UN Calls Time on Phone Cheats

United Nations peacekeepers enforcing a December 2000 accord between Ethiopia and Eritrea defrauded the body of more than $500,000 in telephone calls, UN auditors have reported.

The news comes as the UN finds itself under growing criticism following alleged mismanagement of its discredited UN oil-for-food programme for Iraq and for sexual abuse of minors by peacekeepers in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
