Three UN Peacekeepers In Haiti Wounded During Patrols
Three United Nations peacekeepers in Haiti were shot at and slightly wounded by so far unidentified people during weekend patrols in an area of the Caribbean country's capital, Port-au-Prince, UN spokesman Fred Eckhard said today.
Two of the soldiers from Brazil were shot at late Friday and the third on Saturday as they routinely patrolled the Bel Air neighbourhood. They received medical treatment, rejoined their contingent and were in good condition today, he told the daily press briefing at UN Headquarters in New York.
The UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) is investigating the shootings.
