Mudslides Kill 40 In Haiti

Heavy rains unleashed mudslides in a remote port town, killing up to 40 people, Haitian radio stations reported Wednesday.

Radio Haiti Inter and Radio Vision 2000 said the weekend storms also sank six boats off Baie de Henne, a remote town on Haiti’s northern peninsula about 100 miles northwest of Port-au-Prince.

Two other people were killed in a mudslide in the Portau-Prince suburb of Carrefour on Tuesday, radio stations reported.

U.N. spokesman Eric Falt said the reports couldn’t be confirmed.
