U.S. forces have not taken up a policing role in Haiti but do have the authority to protect “innocent Haitians” and themselves if necessary, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said on Monday.

The U.S. military expects to have around 10,000 troops in Haiti and in ships offshore by Monday for the massive relief effort.

Haitian President Rene Preval said on Sunday that U.S. troops will help U.N. peacekeepers keep order on Haiti’s streets, where overstretched police and U.N. peacekeepers have been unable to provide full security.

In Port-au-Prince, the crippled capital, and environs U.S. troops protected food and water supplies being handed out as marauding looters emptied wrecked shops and tens of thousands of survivors waited desperately for food and medical care.
