Uruguay will keep peacekeepers in Haiti through 2014

Lawmakers in Uruguay on Monday voted to keep peacekeepers in Haiti through the end of 2014, but said the government would keep open the option of an earlier full withdrawal. The legislation approved in the Senate, and which had already passed in the lower house, calls for all peacekeepers to remain in the impoverished Caribbean nation until April 30, 2014. At that point, one-third of the roughly 950 Uruguayan peacekeepers currently deployed in Haiti would be withdrawn. The remaining Blue Helmets would stay in place until year's end.
