State Dept. issues revised Haiti travel warning

WASHINGTON – The State Department has issued an updated warning to Americans traveling to Haiti, citing murder, robbery and infectious disease.

The advisory issued Friday warns that no one traveling to Haiti is safe from kidnapping, regardless of occupation, nationality, race, gender, or age.

In recent months, the department says, travelers arriving in Port-au-Prince on flights from the U.S. have been attacked and robbed after leaving the airport. At least two Americans were shot and killed in robbery and kidnapping incidents this year.

Haitian authorities, the department says, have limited capacity to deter or investigate violent crimes.

The State Department also notes that cholera persists in many areas of Haiti. Medical facilities, including ambulance services, are particularly weak.
