FARGO (AP) — Military police with the North Dakota National Guard have arrived in Haiti.

The Caribbean nation was devastated by a mid-January earthquake.

Twenty-one soldiers with the Guard's 191st Military Police Company will spend three weeks helping with security.

The 191st is based in Fargo, Bismarck and Mayville. The soldiers all volunteered for the mission. They are part of a group of 500 personnel from numerous states and territories.
