Photos from Port Salut: MINUSTAH Trash Piles, Murky Water Running Off from the Base

There are further complaints against the UN’s Uruguayan peacekeeping battalion in Port Salut, beyond the incident captured on cell phone video detailed yesterday, as described in the slideshow below.

Ernso Valentin and Deputy Sinal Bertrand also allege that MINUSTAH troops have been engaged in exchanging food for sex and prostitution with young girls.

The slideshow can be embedded on your website using this code, while larger-size photos can be viewed at my Flickr page and subsequently shared.

Update: Also see this piece I filed for Al Jazeera English, which includes more details and Haitian voices from Port Salut.
