South Korea to send 240 troops to Haiti

SEOUL, South Korea -- South Korea's parliament has approved a plan to send 240 troops to Haiti to help rebuild the Caribbean nation hit by a devastating earthquake.

The Foreign Ministry said Tuesday the South Korean troops, mostly engineers, will provide humanitarian assistance to and rebuild areas in Leogane, just west of the capital, Port-au-Prince.

Haiti's catastrophic earthquake last month killed an estimated 200,000 people and left as many as 3 million in need of food, shelter and medicine.

The parliamentary approval came some 20 days after the United Nations Security Council adopted a resolution to increase the U.N.'s Haitian mission by 2,000 troops and 1,500 police officers.
