OAS head visits Haiti

July 6, 2005 at 2:34 PM   |   Comments

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti, July 6 (UPI) -- Organization of American States Secretary-General Jose Miguel Insulza is visiting Haiti to determine the situation in the embattled Caribbean nation.

Insulza is to meet with Haiti's interim leaders to discuss conditions for the upcoming election this year, Haitian radio reported Wednesday.

Haiti was plunged into violence and chaos last year when armed rebels began taking over the country calling for the resignation of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, who eventually left Haiti in February 2004.

Since then hundreds of people have been killed despite efforts by 7,500 U.N. peacekeepers and international police to bring order to the nation.
