LI man killed in Haiti U.N. building collapse
(AP) - A Long Island man who worked as a United Nations peacekeeper in Haiti has been found dead in the rubble of U.N. headquarters in Port-au-Prince.
A U.N. spokesman in New York City confirmed Andrew Grene's death Tuesday. The Hicksville resident was 44.
His twin brother, Gregory, told Newsday it's believed his brother was meeting with the head of the U.N. mission in Haiti when the building collapsed last week. The U.N. spokesman said Grene was among some 40 people killed at the headquarters building.
U.N. officials say scores of other U.N. workers in Haiti are missing.
