The United Nations chief envoy for Afghanistan, Lakhdar Brahimi, was en route to New York today to brief the Security Council on a UN-mandated multinational security force, while his deputy continued talks with Afghan leaders in preparation for the country's new interim government.

Mr. Brahimi, Secretary General Kofi Annan's Special Representative for Afghanistan, is expected back in the region sometime next week, UN officials said.
