UNESCO, the United Nations’ cultural agency, is seeking $14 million via an international campaign with an eye to preserving Ethiopian historical landmarks. UNESCO Director General Federico Mayor said the agency wants to restore 13th Century churches at Lalibella that were hewn out of rock. UNESCO also will work on 17th-Century castles of Gondar, the old imperial capital, and on stela at Tiya and at the ancient city of Axum.
