Port-au-Prince - Authorities say two UN police officers from Rwanda have been shot dead at their home in northern Haiti.

The Rwanda national police said the two female officers who were serving under the UN stabilisation mission in Haiti were shot and killed inside their living quarters in Cap Haitien by unidentified assailants.

They believe the killings of the two assistant inspectors occurred earlier.

An investigation by the UN mission, Haitian national police and Rwandan authorities has been launched.

The head of the UN mission,  Sandra Honore, deplored the killings.

The UN has kept peacekeepers in Haiti since the 2004 rebellion that ousted then-President Jean-Bertrand Aristide.
