UN - Lubbers quits over sex claims

About time.

The head of the UN refugee agency, Ruud Lubbers, has resigned following allegations of sexual harassment.

In a letter to Secretary General Kofi Annan, Mr Lubbers denied the allegations and said he was quitting because of a lack of confidence in him.

Mr Annan accepted the resignation, thanked Mr Lubbers for his work, and said a new page had to be turned.

The allegations against Mr Lubbers were contained in a confidential UN report leaked by the press on Friday.

I'd say several pages need turning, including Annan's.
