Four Chinese peacekeeping police officers have arrived here to replace the three Chinese peacekeepers who died in Haitian earthquake.
The four took up their posts at a meeting Tuesday in the Chinese field command. Hu Yunwang is political commissar of the Chinese anti-riot team in Haiti and Duan Zhonghui the liaison officer while Shi Jindong will be responsible for media affairs. He Guangwei, the new team doctor, will mainly provide psychological counsel for the peacekeepers.
On the same day, 50 Chinese international rescue team members, staff from the Chinese Foreign Ministry and Ministry of Public Security and 48 Chinese citizens will fly home.
On Monday, a 40-member Chinese medical team also arrived at the airport of the earthquake-ravaged Port-au-Prince to provide medical care for Haitians, bringing with them large quantities of medicine and medical equipment.
