To say that the U.N.'s peacekeeping mission in Haiti has been controversial is an understatement.
The peacekeepers are blamed for bringing cholera to the island nation for the first time.
They were accused of sexually abusing locals. Haitians have accused them of being an occupying army.
But the peacekeepers also have been credited with bringing a measure of stability to one of the most impoverished, unstable nations in the hemisphere.
And now, after 13 years, the end of the mission is in sight.
