Fears growing for Irish UN worker still missing

CONCERN is growing for an Irish citizen who remains missing after the deadly Haiti earthquake.

Andrew Grene had been serving in Haiti as an adviser to the head of the United Nations peacekeeping operation when the UN building in the capital, Port au Prince, collapsed.

The 44-year-old was in a meeting with Hedi Annabi, the chief of the UN in Haiti, and a delegation from China when the 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck. Mr Annabi's body was recovered on Saturday.

Andrew -- who holds dual American and Irish citizenship -- has not been in touch with his family since the disaster one week ago.
