Boutros Boutros-Ghali, Former U.N. Secretary General, Dies at 93

Boutros Boutros-Ghali, an Egyptian diplomat who led the United Nations in a chaotic 1990s tenure that began with hopes for peace after the Cold War, but failed to cope with genocide in Rwanda and Bosnia and ended in angry recriminations with Washington, has died. He was 93.

His death was confirmed by the office of Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, which did not say where or when Mr. Boutros-Ghali died.
