UN POLICE MAGAZINE - 7th Edition July 2011
May 29 is the International Day of United Nations Peacekeepers. On this day, we pay tribute to the military, police and civilian personnel serving worldwide under the blue flag, and remember those who lost their lives in the cause of peace. Between 31 March 2010 and 10 April 2011, a total 99 peacekeepers lost their lives. Some were caught in the crossfire, some died of disease or accidents, while others were targeted and murdered. Of these, nine were United Nations Police Officers.
