Haiti: 3 UN Peacekeepers Injured In Ambush

Three soldiers serving with the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) were injured in an attack on Friday, the UN reported today.

At least four individuals took part in the afternoon ambush, firing on MINUSTAH blue helmets patrolling in Plaisance, which is located some 30 kilometres outside of Cap-Haïtien.

The assailants fled when peacekeepers returned fire, MINUSTAH said.

The injured troops, all Chilean, were evacuated to the Mission's hospital in the capital, Port-au-Prince. They are all expected to survive their injuries.
