Haitian Justice Minister Paul Denis survived the massive earthquake that shook his nation last week, the country’s ambassador in Germany said.
Denis had earlier been reported to be among those killed.
Ambassador Jean Robert Saget said the minister survived the quake in a hole and that he had been falsely informed of Denis’ death.
Denis left the justice ministry shortly before last Tuesday’s magnitude-7 earthquake. The ministry was destroyed, leading to the belief he had been killed under the rubble.
Last Friday, Saget said Denis was "certainly" among the dead.
He was however injured and being treated in hospital.
