For the first time relief and aid workers are being honoured around the world.

August 19th, 2009 marks the initial annual World Humanitarian Day according to Reuters.

It says today coincides with the anniversary of an Iraqi truck bombing which fatally wounded twenty two people at United Nations (UN) Headquarters in Baghdad six years ago.

The United Nations told Reuters that in the past ten years seven hundred aid workers have been killed during attacks, kidnappings and robberies. And that this day pays homage to them.
