US issues Haiti travel advisory after 4 Americans killed in separate muggings

The Canadian Press: "PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — The U.S. Embassy is advising travellers to exercise caution in Haiti after four U.S. citizens were killed in separate robberies near Port-au-Prince's airport.
All those killed were visiting relatives in Haiti, embassy officials told The Associated Press on Monday. The attacks occurred over three months and in three different locations.
The warning comes as scores of Americans are streaming in to provide post-earthquake aid and help with reconstruction. It says authorities believe criminals may be targeting travellers arriving from the United States and advises caution in arranging transport from the airport."
