UN refugee boss Ruud Lubbers has quit over sexual harrassment allegations, even though he denies them:
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.
It said that the former Dutch prime minister had engaged in unwanted physical contact with a female employee at his agency in Geneva.
The report added that claims made by other employees indicated a pattern of sexual harassment – although these women had not made official complaints.
An anxious world awaits the London Sun’s headline.
