Adjust font size:

Ninety-five Chinese riot police on Sunday left Beijing as China's fourth peacekeeping team to Haiti in a United Nations peacekeeping mission.


A 30-member contingent of the team arrived in Haiti on Aug.4.


The members' average age is 28 and include six women. They are expected to be stationed in Haiti for eight months, according to the Ministry of Public Security.


The team is composed by border police, most from east China's Fujian Province.


They were trained on the language, shooting, driving, and combat skills, the police authority said, adding that they had been appraised by UN officials.


UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan said during his visit to Haiti earlier this month that he would call for a 12-month extension of the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti.


China's third Chinese riot police team is scheduled to return on Aug. 15. Thirty members of them arrived in China on Aug. 4.
