UN soldier shot and robbed outside Haitian bank

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti

U.N. police spokesman Jean-Francois Vezina says three gunmen approached on motorcycles and shot the off-duty Yemeni soldier as he left a Sogebank branch Thursday morning.

The robbers took an undisclosed amount of money from the soldier, who was not in uniform.

Vezina says the soldier is in stable condition with a bullet wound in his shoulder. The Haitian woman injured in the attack in the capital's Petionville neighborhood is also receiving treatment.

There have recently been several armed robberies outside banks and money-changing stands across Port-au-Prince.
