In an earlier post I posted that Annabi, head of the MINUSTAH mission was dead.
This was from a report from Haiti
This has not been confirmed-

The Field Operations and Technical Cooperation Division, in cooperation
with the Safety and Security Unit, is preparing these updates to share
information on the situation of MINUSTAH Human Rights Section staff. We
will also share information on other MINUSTAH staff as it comes in.
Should you have any information on the safety of any MINUSTAH staff

Human Rights Section staff
It is with great sadness that we mourn the loss of our colleague, Lisa
Mbele-Mbong. Lisa served as a Human Rights Officer in MONUC and MINUSTAH,
and may have been a friend and colleague to many of you. We shall
remember her in our thoughts. Her son is safe in Port-au-Prince, and her
family has been informed.
Dieudonné Munyinga, who was injured and evacuated to the Dominican
Republic, is reportedly in a stable condition.
Other MINUSTAH staff
William Gardner, Heiner Rosendahl and Jonas Scherrens are safe. Louis
Nkopipie from UNDP is safe. Ekaterina Pischalnikova is injured and has
been evacuated to the Dominican Republic.
