From NPR:

Former U.N. Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali has died at age 93.

The diplomat’s death comes days after news emerged that he had been admitted to a hospital in Cairo – an event that prompted Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi to call Boutros-Ghali to check on his health.

Boutros-Ghali’s death was confirmed by the U.N. Security Council, which began today’s session with a moment of silence in his honor.

Born in Egypt in 1922, Boutros-Ghali was a member of a prominent Coptic Christian family. His grandfather and namesake, Boutros Ghali, had served as Egypt’s prime minister from 1908 to 1910, when he was assassinated.
