The U.S. military will resume airlifting injured earthquake victims from Haiti to the U.S. for medical treatment Monday.
The military suspended those operations Wednesday, but the White House says it has received word that U.S. medical facilities can handle the additional load. It is unclear what led to the suspension.
"We determined that we can resume these critical flights," White House spokesman Tommy Vietor said late Sunday. "Patients are being identified for transfer, doctors are making sure that it is safe for them to fly, and we are preparing specific in-flight pediatric care aboard the aircraft where needed."
Officials in Florida, one of the top destinations for injured Haitians, say no one was turned away.
Florida Gov. Charlie Crist said, "We're welcoming Haitians with open arms and probably done more than any other state and are happy to continue to do so."
