The UN Security Council Wednesday reappointed the prosecutors working at the tribunals tasked with bringing to justice the perpetrators of crimes committed during the Balkans conflicts of the 1990s and the 1994 genocide in Rwanda.

Acting on two separate resolutions, the Security Council reappointed prosecutors Serge Brammertz of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) and Hassan Bubacar Jallow of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) for new terms, until 31 December 2014.
