6 Bangladeshi police officers in Haiti safe..

Six Bangladesh Police officials working for the UN peacekeeping mission in Haiti were reported safe yesterday following the massive quake that rocked the Caribbean country on Tuesday.

Additional Inspector General of Police (AIGP-Media) Nazrul Islam told The Daily Star that the officials sent e-mails to the police headquarters in Dhaka yesterday confirming they were unhurt.

The six policemen, including two traffic officials, were working for the peacekeeping mission but none of them was posted to the UN headquarters in Haitian capital Port-au-Prince, which collapsed in the 7.0-magnitude earthquake.

Inspectors Khandaker Hossain Ahmed, Mohammad Abu Bakar, Mohammad Shah Kabir and sergeant Mohammad Mabian Mian were posted to Haitian capital Port-au-Prince while Inspector Kaiser Ali and Sub-Inspector Abu SM Quamrul Ahsan were posted to Mirebalais.
As well as the six police officials, four Bangladeshi nationals serve as civil staffs of UN peacekeeping mission in Haiti, according to reports from international media.

Of the four civilians, Khan H Abedin serving in Port-au-Prince is known to have suffered minor injuries but he is now out of danger, sources said. However, the condition of the rest is unknown.
