Peaceful Referendum in Zanzibar (Tanzania)

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today welcomed the peaceful staging of a referendum in Zanzibar, saying it will help with long-term reconciliation efforts in the semi-autonomous Tanzanian islands.  Two thirds of voters in Zanzibar cast their ballots over the weekend in favour of a unity government, according to media reports.
