It crashed near the Haitian town of Fond Verrettes, it is assumed that none of its 11 occupants survived, 5 of whom belonged to the contingent of Uruguayan peacekeepers and 6 to Jordan.
It was learned that the plane Uruguayan mission conducted surveillance on the border of Haiti to the Dominican Republic, cuanod lost contact with controllers of MINUSTAH, about noon, when he was over the town of Ganthier.
MINUSTAH was created in 2004 by the Security Council to restore order after violent overthrow and departure of President Jean Bertrand Aristide.
As Uruguayan, my condolences to the families of all those Uruguayan military and Jordanians, to leave their land, they turn to others to give their best in peace missions, often risking their lives, but above all to give a little peace and quiet to those countries.
Rest in peace and hopefully in the future there are no more such missions of peace, because it would mean that at last we humans can live in peace and respect each other.
