UN peacekeepers on Friday found the bodies of 16 people believed killed in a surge of gang violence, the latest sign the Caribbean nation's capital may be slipping back into disorder after months of relative calm. Sri Lankan troops found the bodies Friday morning in the southern Port-au-Prince slum of Martissant, a UN statement said. The slum was the site of a recent spate of gunbattles between warring gangs.
