The United Nations nuclear agency's governing board chose on Thursday a veteran Japanese diplomat as its new head, diplomats said. According to the diplomats, Yukiya Amano received the required two-thirds majority from the 35-nation board. The vote Thursday was 23 for Amano and 11 for Abdul Samad Minty of South Africa, with one abstention. The present head, Mohamed ElBaradei, was scheduled to end his term in November. A previous round of balloting in March was indecisive. The diplomats spoke on the events inside the closed meeting on condition of anonymity.
