The United Nations (UN) is an intergovernmental organization established after World War Two in 1945 to promote international co-operation and maintain international security.
The UN has 193 members and its headquarters are in New York City. Its objectives also include promoting human rights, fostering social and economic development, protecting the environment, and humanitarian aid. It is financed through contributions from its member states.
An appeals court in the Netherlands has ruled that Dutch peacekeepers were only partly responsible for about 300 deaths in the 1995 Srebrenica massacre. Relatives of the victims had appealed a similar ruling from 2014.
