Haiti: Chinese Policemen to Join UN Mission

Collectif Haiti de Provence, a France-based Haitian blog, points to a Radio Kiskeya article that writes (Fr): “125 newly-minted Chinese police officers will be sent to Haiti in August in order to join the UN Mission [MINUSTAH] (…) Specialized in anti-riot operations, Chinese policemen were among the UN units that helped prison guards quell a mutiny in Port-au-Prince's main prison a couple of hours after President Rene Preval's inauguration on May 14.”
