United Nations - United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has laid a wreath in memory of the 157 victims of the Ethiopian Airlines crash, including the many staff members and partners who support the world body’s work.

Several hundred diplomats and staff members joined him in paying silent tribute Friday. The victims came from 35 countries and included at least 21 U.N. staffers from different agencies.

Guterres said they were “a mirror of the United Nations ... each on an individual mission, but at the same time together, representing our larger quest — doing their part, in solidarity with all of us, to build a better world.”
