World News: Czech Republic elected to replace Russia on U.N. rights council Updated: 2022-05-11 04:58:02 KST

The United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday, elected the Czech Republic to its Human Rights Council, replacing Russia.
Russia was suspended from the council last month, two years into a three-year term, over its invasion of Ukraine, and allegations of horrific human rights violations.
The Czech Republic will complete that period on the council instead, although it cannot make legally binding decisions.
Receiving 157 votes in favor, while 23 countries abstained, the Czech Republic will start its term immediately.
The Human Rights Council is slated to hold a session on Ukraine on Thursday, following a request by Kyiv for a review of the situation there.
