Santo Domingo.- A Haitian national suspected of the shooting death of a Chilean military member of the UN peacekeeping force in Haiti (MINUSTAH) has been arrested in his country, according to local media quoting Dominican Army sources in Dajabón (northwest).

According to reports, the alleged killer of the soldier Andrés Rodrigo Sanhueza, was arrested at dawn Friday by Haitian police and MINUSTAH peacekeepers, along with two others in a mountain in Malfeti, Haiti, where they were hiding.

Sanhueza, who was serving with the Chilean Battalion, was in a vehicle near the Haiti town Ouanaminthe, along with other soldiers who, after arriving at the scene of a protest, "were fired on with guns, with a projectile impacting the Sergeant."
