WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Former U.S. President Bill Clinton said on Sunday he will travel to Haiti on Monday, his first visit since a powerful earthquake devastated the country, to meet with government officials and the international community.

"As U.N. Special Envoy for Haiti, I feel a deep obligation to the Haitian people to visit the country and meet with President (Rene) Preval to ensure our response continues to be coordinated and effective," Clinton said in a statement, adding that he would also deliver much-needed emergency supplies.

2. And, he will have
an assessment when he gets back. Good luck to him and to all the Haitians.

4. And after his experience with the tsunami, I'm sure his assessment
will be very accurate and invaluable. I'm so glad he's on this.
