The Security Council,
Deeply shocked by the tragic death of the United Nations Mediator in Palestine, Count Folke Bernadotte, as the result of a cowardly act which appears to have been committed by a criminal group of terrorists in Jerusalem while the United Nations representative was fulfilling his peace-seeking mission in the Holy Land,
1. To request the Secretary-General to keep the flag of the United Nations at half-mast for a period of three days;
2. To authorize the Secretary-General to meet from the Working Capital Fund all expenses connected with the death and burial of the United Nations Mediator;
3. To be represented at the interment by the President or the person whom he may appoint for the occasion.
