U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan on Friday in Geneva took part in a ceremony marking the first anniversary of the bombing of U.N. headquarters in Baghdad. U.N. envoy Sergio Vieira de Mello, a Brazilian diplomat was among the victims.

Annan said the United States was conducting an investigation of the attack and that ``we are still waiting for answers.'' ``However long it takes, I pray that the perpetrators are held to account and do not get away with this cold-blooded murder,'' Annan said at the ceremony in Geneva.
