The UN Security Council is extending the mandate of a scaled-back UN peacebuilding mission in Nepal to help integrate Maoist rebel fighters and monitor arms, but wants the UN's activities wrapped up in six months. A resolution adopted unanimously by the council on Friday would maintain 73 arms monitors but abolish most of the 18 remaining civilian posts.
