Members of the UN Security Council have been visiting Haiti, home to one of the organisation's most controversial peacekeeping missions.

The UN mission, known as Minustah, consists of 11,000 peacekeepers who were sent to provide security and build government institutions in a country plagued by corruption, poverty and violence.

But after eight years, the mission’s popularity is at an all-time low due to a series of scandals, from allegations of sexual abuse to accusations of spreading cholera.

The UN says it will take four more years to bolster Haiti's security forces, in order for it to become fully independent.
