Haitians Suspected in Coup Plot Detained

Former Haitian police chief and four others suspected of plotting against their government were detained in the neighboring Dominican Republic, authorities said Wednesday.

Fernando Cruz of the national investigative department. “These people are being investigated because of allegations that they are trying to reach Haiti with the aim of conspiring” against the government, Cruz said.
