Haitian minister accuses UN peacekeepers of violating mandate

Monday, March 07, 2005

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) - Haiti's justice minister has accused UN peacekeepers of violating their mandate, in a dispute over police officers accused of killing unarmed protesters that is creating more tension ahead of elections to replace ousted President Jean-Bertrand Aristide.

Saturday's remarks could bring a confrontation about areas of responsibility between Haiti's US-backed interim government and the 7,400-member UN peacekeeping force tasked with supporting the government and restoring a stability that remains elusive one year after Aristide fled a rebel uprising.

Last Monday, witnesses say police fired into demonstrators flanked by UN troops. The protesters were marking the anniversary of Aristide's flight and demanding his return from exile in South Africa.


Forward to a united Africa!
