“The US air force has begun flying in civilian contractors and equipment to the Haitian capital in hopes that a long-delayed international police force can be deployed to restore order to a country in the grip of violent gangs. Several American military aircraft have arrived at Port-au-Prince airport in recent days, according to the US Southern Command, the Miami-based Pentagon headquarters for American forces in Latin America. They were delivering contractors to ‘set up the temporary living area’ for the UN-authorised multinational security force, led by 1,000 Kenyan police officers, Southern Command said in a statement.” (05/12/24)
