UN mission in Haiti announces 2nd death

The UN peacekeeping mission in Haiti said it is investigating a second death of a Rwandan police officer.



Port-Au-Prince: The UN peacekeeping mission in Haiti said it is investigating a second death of a Rwandan police officer in as many weeks, adding that it believes the deaths are related.

The body of Sgt Jeremiah Aloys Nsengiyumva was found Sunday behind a military camp for Uruguayan troops, while the body of Sgt Hassan Bisangwa was discovered last Wednesday in the town of Jeremie on Haiti`s far western coast, the United Nations` force said in a statement yesterday.

The statement said that Aloys Nsengiyumva fatally shot Bisangwa and fled. The two were part of a police unit that was deployed to Haiti in December 2011.
The UN force didn`t provide a motive for the shooting.

The mission in Haiti, known by the French acronym Minustah, arrived in 2004 following the ouster of then-President Jean-Bertrand Aristide and has helped provide stability since. The UN says 173 people associated with the Haiti mission have died since then, 102 of them in the country`s 2010 earthquake.
