The United Nations flag at the UN Headquarters in New York is at half mast today as a sign of paying tribute to Fijian UN worker the late Seniloli Tabuatausole and two other Libyans who lost their lives in a horrific attack in Benghazi in Libya last Saturday.

The late Tabuatausole was one of three UN workers killed in the car bombing.

The explosion took place in front of a shopping mall as Libyans were out shopping in preparation for Eid al Adha.

The late Tabuatausole is a former member of the Republic of Fiji Military Forces and is one of the three Fijians serving in the United Nations Support Mission in Libya.
