UNITED NATIONS - China, Cuba, Russia and Saudi Arabia on Tuesday won three-year seats on the Geneva-based Human Rights Council, the United Nations' top rights body, despite concerns about abuses and restrictions on freedoms in all four nations.

Also winning seats on the 47-nation council were Algeria, Britain, France, Mexico, Maldives, Morocco, Namibia, South Africa, Vietnam, and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.The annual election for one-third of the council's membership was held in the 193-nation UN General Assembly. South Sudan and Uruguay failed to win election to the council because of competitive slates in their respective regional groups. The other regions had uncontested ballots.
