UN delegation pushes for Haitian stability

UN delegation pushes for Haitian stability

A U.N. Security Council delegation has arrived in Haiti for a four-day visit to promote stability and economic progress.
Delegation leader and Costa Rican ambassador Jorge Urbina says the 15-member group will meet with President Rene Preval, lawmakers, election officials and the private sector.
Protesters stoned and burned a U.N. vehicle in front of a Port-au-Prince university shortly before the mission arrived on Wednesday.
The U.N. has maintained a 9,000-member peacekeeping force in Haiti since 2004.
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and former U.S. President Bill Clinton visited Haiti earlier this week to encourage an increase in aid and investment in the impoverished country.
