Risk of full-scale war if Western Sahara mission departs: U.N.

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has recommended extending for another 12 months the mandate of the U.N. peacekeeping mission in the disputed territory of Western Sahara, according to a new report seen by Reuters on Tuesday.

"The risk of a rupture of the ceasefire and a resumption of hostilities, with its attendant danger of escalation into full-scale war, will grow significantly in the event that MINURSO is forced to depart or finds itself unable to execute the mandate that the Security Council has set," Ban said in the report.
