On February 28

On this day in ...
... 1992 (20 years ago today), U.N. Security Council Resolution 745 on Cambodia was adopted, and thus established a mission – known as the United Nations Transitional Authority in Cambodia, or UNTAC – by which elections were to be held, among other efforts to bring transitional justice to the southeast Asian country. (credit for UNTAC logo) More than 15,000 U.N. peacekeepers would be deployed in Cambodia until September of the following year.
