Obama expresses condolences for peacekeeper losses

President Barack Obama has offered his condolences to the U.N. secretary-general and president of Brazil for the loss of U.N. peacekeepers in Haiti's devastating earthquake.
Calls to Ban Ki-moon and Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva were among the handful of world leaders and the U.S. ambassador to Haiti that Obama made to discuss search-and-rescue efforts in Haiti.
The U.N. chief, da Silva and the presidents of Mexico and Chile, along with Canada's prime minister described their short- and long-term support to assist in Haiti's recovery.
Obama's attempts to reach Haiti's president, Rene Preval, have not been successful.
