A Jordanian peacekeeper serving with the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) has become the latest blue helmet to lose his life for the cause of peace after dying today of a gunshot wound sustained at the weekend during an operation to seize a stolen vehicle and find a kidnapped woman.
Muhammed Khalaf died at a hospital in the Dominican Republic, where he had been evacuated for treatment.
The shooting took place on Saturday in Cité Soleil, the sprawling low-income suburb of Haiti's capital, Port-au-Prince, according to MINUSTAH.
