Lou Charbonneau from Haiti

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

Lou Charbonneau from Haiti today:

I and oth­er reporters trav­el­ing with Ban saw few, if any, U.N. peace­keep­ers on the streets of Port-au-Prince who weren’t active­ly involved in try­ing to keep ordi­nary Haitians away from the U.N. delegation’s con­voy. But the search-and-res­cue teams were vis­i­ble. I saw at least half a dozen res­cue squads from France, Israel, Germany and else­where in nor­mal res­i­den­tial areas pick­ing their way method­i­cal­ly through heaps of rub­ble to try to lib­er­ate any­one who might be trapped.
