PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — The United Nations Security Council has begun a four-day mission in Haiti to review the terms of its mandate.

The 15-member delegation led by Ambassador Susan Rice of the United States plans to meet with senior Haitian officials, tour an industrial park in the north and visit a police academy in the capital.

The U.N. set up a peacekeeping mission in Haiti known by its French acronym Minustah in 2004 following the overthrow of then-President Jean-Bertrand Aristide.

The Security Council last visited Haiti in 2009, which was months before the devastating earthquake in January 2010.

The delegation arrived in Port-au-Prince on Monday.
