They were Reham al-Farra, Jean-Selim Kanaan, Chris Klein-Beekman, Fiona Watson and Nadia Younes.“Alive you changed all of us you touched,” Mr. Malloch Brown said in a ceremony. “Now your deaths have changed our very organization. You have broken our hearts and inspired us.“You leave us the now even harder task of finishing what you began; but your sacrifice must be our commitment. Now we return you to your families, and they to the life beyond. God speed, for you have earned it,” he concluded.Of the 23 killed, 19 were UN staff – 11 internationals and 8 nationals.Deputy Secretary-General Louise Fréchette was set to leave New York tonight for Geneva to attend a religious memorial service on Thursday morning for Mr. Vieira de Mello, who at the time of his death was on leave from his post as High Commissioner for Human Rights.In the afternoon, Ms. Fréchette will attend a commemoration jointly organized by the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees and by the Office of the High Commissioner of Human Rights.
