ANNAN WON'T OPPOSE PROBE OF ACTIONS DURING GENOCIDE

U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan said today he would not oppose an independent investigation of his role in events surrounding the 1994 genocide in Rwanda.

Earlier this week, relatives of Belgian and Rwandan victims of the genocide sharply criticized Annan, who was director of U.N. peacekeeping operations when up to 800,000 people were killed in the former Belgian protectorate in Africa.

The relatives urged Annan to set up an independent panel of experts to investigate his actions and those of the United Nations.
