Photo of the Day: In Nepal, UN Mission Wraps It Up

The United Nations Mission in Nepal staff (UNMIN) fold the UN flag as UNMIN Representative Karin Landgren (2nd R) looks on during a flag lowering ceremony in Kathmandu on January 14, 2011. A UN mission set up four years ago to oversee Nepal's post-war transition will close on January 15, removing a crucial buffer between two armed factions in the fragile nation. The UN Mission in Nepal (UNMIN) was created in 2007 with a one-year mandate to supervise the peace process after a decade-long conflict between Maoist insurgents and state forces in which at least 16,000 people died.
