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.
