Chinese police trained in crowd control join UN mission in Haiti
They brought to 269 the total of formed police units prepared for crowd control, including 19 Nepalese who arrived in September and 125 Jordanians in August.
The total expected to join the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) is 750 and they will be deployed in four cities: Port-au-Prince, Cap-Haitien, Les Cayes and Gonaïves.
Meanwhile, one of the UN World Food Programme (WFP) convoys scheduled to leave Port-au-Prince every other day for Gonaïves, a city badly damaged by violence and flood, left the capital today. The convoys are protected by UN troops and take food to three Gonaïves distribution points, UN spokesperson Marie Okabe said.
