New York, Oct 22 2005
Blue helmets serving with the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) have apprehended seven suspected bandits who were turned over to the UN and national police.
The arrests were carried out by members of the Brazilian battalion during a military operation in the Bel Air neighbourhood on Thursday.
The suspects were identified as members of an armed group led by the notorious "General Toutou."
The operation resulted from information provided by members of the local population and involved 220 soldiers supported by 8 armoured vehicles.
