Rumors have hit the streets - a UN soldier supposedly raped a little boy from Jubilee 2 weeks ago. The Haitians are furious, as are we. I've been hearing a lot of anti-UN and anti-foreigner comments in the streets, and recently, there's been some tire burning and rock throwing on the main roads. So far, it's absolutely nothing compared to the political rioting and the cholera rioting that the UN inspired last year; schools only closed for a few days this week and all the markets stayed open and the streets have been as busy as ever.
I hope the rumors are false. If they're not, I may be the next tire burner and rock thrower...
