UN peacekeepers who turned predatory in Haiti
On Jan. 23, the members of the United Nations Security Council will head to Haiti. It’s safe to assume that they will focus on the political crisis: because parliamentary elections were not held by Haiti’s legislative deadline, the current government, headed by President Michel Martelly, is now ruling by decree. It’s also safe to assume that the council will most likely sidestep cholera, a disease that U.N. peacekeepers transported to Haiti in 2010 that has killed more than 8,500 people.
