Haiti no longer among US imminent danger areas

WASHINGTON, United States (CMC) -- The United States Department of Defence (DOD) says Haiti is no longer among some locations designated as “imminent danger pay (IDP) areas”.

The DOD said that the earthquake-ravaged, French-speaking Caribbean country, along with eight other “land areas” would no longer be designated as an IDP, effective June 1, 2014.

The others are East Timor, Liberia, Oman, Rwanda, Tajikistan, United Arab Emirates, Kyrgyzstan, and Uzbekistan.

The DOD has also said the Persian Gulf would no longer be a “water area and air space” for IDP purposes and that IDP would remain in effect for Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Jordan, Pakistan, Syria, Yemen, and Egypt within the US Central Command area of responsibility.
