Argentines Burn U.S. Flag to Protest Sending Troops to Haiti

Leftist activists on Thursday set fire to the flags of the United 
States and the United Nations on the terrace of the Argentine Defense 
Ministry here as a protest against the deployment of troops to Haiti. 
"If an army is national, it can't be an invading army," said Fernando 
Esteche, leader of the leftist organization Quibracho, at the protest, 
which was otherwise peaceful. Some 600 Argentine troops are set to 
travel to Haiti in mid-July to join the U.N. peacekeeping mission on 
the Caribbean island. (EFE News Service)
