Africa rallies behind Diouf's FAO bid

Addis-Ababa- Ethiopia (PANA) -- The African Union, which closed its third summit here Thursday, has urged members to back the candidacy of Senegalese Jacques Diouf for a third mandate as Director General of the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO).
Diouf, whose term of office expires in 2005, received similar support last March from the AU Executive Council.
