"A United Nations spokeswoman says the world body's peacekeeping mission in Haiti has deployed troops to several slums in Port-au-Prince to crack down on gangs and criminals. Barbara Mertz of the U.N. peacekeeping mission in Haiti says 'Operation Phoenix' will use more than 2,100 soldiers to catch criminals in Cite Soleil, Bel-Air and Martissant. All three slums are longtime havens for gang activity." (07/14/11)
