Haiti

    UN peacekeepers in Haiti and the country's police force have seized 50 kilograms of cannabis in the first joint drugs bust of its kind in the impoverished Caribbean nation. The large-scale anti-drugs operation - between the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti, known as MINUSTAH, and the Haitian National Police (HNP) - struck three sites in the south of the country. The largest capture came from a disused nightclub near a beach in Aquinas, where the blue helmets and HNP found 35 kilograms of the illicit herb and four motor boats that were destroyed by court order.
