SECURITY BRIEFING: The US Mission to the UN will host a general briefing on security for the Cairo Conference for US NGOs, at 5:00 pm on the 8th Floor of the Church Center. Speakers will include Timothy Wirth, Mr. O'Brien, Regional Security Officer for the US in Cairo and Amb. Walker, US Ambassador-designate to Egypt. Notwithstanding the overriding political issues that would make a change in venue nearly impossible, many participants have expressed their hope that the Conference will be moved to Geneva, New York or Indonesia.
