The Swiss authorities have informed the United Nations of a threatened attack against its European headquarters in Geneva. Geneva houses the biggest premises of UN outside New York.

It is a general warning with no specific targets or the group behind the threat. Some 1,600 people work in the building, where the U.N. Human Rights Council is currently holding a three-week session to examine alleged violations (including counter-terrorism measures taken) in the wake of the Sept 11, 2001.

Meanwhile, the UN security officials have tightened the security of the premises.

This directionless and purposeless terrorism is going nowhere. It will continue to haunt the civilizations unless the global politics witness a paradigm shift. Till religion continues to intermingle with politics, the fundamentalists will enjoy field day.
