#Yemen: The outrageous attack on a funeral makes an international investigation into the country even more vital. “The UN Human Rights Council's inability to take decisive action by setting up an intl investigation is contributing to a climate of impunity, and violations continue to occur on a regular basis. Such outrageous attacks cannot be allowed to continue,” said UN Human Rights Chief Zeid. Learn more: http://ow.ly/LDLo3051XW0

Mandela's words are our moral compass - for humanity, not inhumanity. Including for people on the move! You don’t have to like me to respect my rights. I don’t have to agree with you to uphold your rights. You don’t have to be like me, for me to protect your rights. Rights are not a system of endorsement or appreciation – they are not an award or a test result nor a beauty parade. Human rights are for the best and for the worst of us. For each of us – to the exclusion of none of us in the interests of all of us. http://ow.ly/zfSJ304oiCk

A must-read: Our new Global Human Rights Update, which addresses many of the country issues you have raised in the comments section on G+. This Update highlights our concern over this emerging pattern -> the growing refusal by an increasing number of Member States to grant us access – either to countries generally, or to specific regions. The Update discusses States that have granted us access, those that have not, or have yet to do so http://ow.ly/vowe3049Td3
