2 UN Peacekeepers Shot in Haiti - 2004-10-11

Officials in Haiti say two soldiers with the U.N. peacekeeping force in the Caribbean country have been shot and wounded in separate incidents.

Authorities say an Argentine soldier was hit by gunfire Saturday night in the northern city of Gonaives, hours after a Brazilian soldier was shot in the capital, Port-au-Prince.

Haitian officials say supporters of former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide have fueled unrest in recent days.

Last week, the U.S. State Department warned Americans against traveling to Haiti, saying the security situation there "remains unpredictable and dangerous."
