Shooting erupts at Haiti protest

Gunmen have opened fire at an anti-government protest in Haiti’s capital, Port-au-Prince, killing two. Opponents of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide were marching when government supporters began shooting at them late on Monday, witnesses said. Riot police returned shots, killing a bystander in the cross-fire. There are no details about the second victim. More than 20 people have been killed in various anti-government protests since September 2003. Protesters say the president has repressed dissent and mismanaged the economy and are calling on him to resign. They have also accused the police of not doing enough to protect them from armed pro-government supporters during protests. Haiti is the poorest country in the Western hemisphere and most of its eight million residents are unemployed. Full Story
