Brazilian peacekeeping soldiers to leave Haiti after 13 years

Vastavam web: The last Brazilian peacekeeping soldiers to Haiti have officially wrapped up their 13-year UN military mission to the Caribbean country.The UN Stabilisation Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) was deployed in 2004 to help stem political violence after the departure of president Jean-Bertrand Aristide — but it has not endeared itself to Haitians.Many Aristide supporters have long perceived the mission as something of an occupying army.
The mission’s reputation was further tarnished in 2010, when Nepalese UN peacekeepers introduced cholera, leading to an outbreak that killed more than 9,000 Haitians.The UN will deploy a successor operation, the United Nations Mission for Justice Support in Haiti (MINUJUSTH).
