Breaking News

Sir Nicholas Henderson, a former British ambassador to the U.S. who helped build support for Britain's war effort in the Falkland Islands, died in his sleep Monday morning in London, his family said. He was 89.

Henderson also served as ambassador to Poland, Spain, Germany and France, and as private secretary to Britain's foreign minister.

Alexandra Drogheda, his daughter, said Henderson played an instrumental role in building support in the U.S. for Britain's decision to invade the Falkland Islands — known in Spanish as Las Malvinas — after they were seized by Argentina in 1982.
