Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon named a Jordanian princess, an Israeli conductor, a Brazilian writer and a Japanese-American violinist as UN peace envoys. The new "Messengers of Peace" - equestrian expert Princess Haya, musician Daniel Barenboim, author Paulo Coelho, and violinist Midori Goto - will be honored at a ceremony on Friday, the International Day of Peace. They will join four other messengers of peace, Nobel Peace Prize winner Elie Wiesel, actor Michael Douglas, primate expert Jane Goodall, and cellist Yo-Yo Ma. Italian opera singer Luciano Pavarotti was a messenger of peace for nearly a decade before his death on Sept. 6.
