In February 2004 anti-Aristide forces began a march on Port-au-Prince, leading to the overthrow of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide. At the new government's request, the UN sent in an interim force to re-establish peace. MINUSTAH followed, with a mandate to re-establish a secure environment, promote human rights and assist in the delivery of humanitarian aid.
