U.S. Marine Wounded in Haiti; Aristide Arrives in Jamaica

A United States marine was shot and wounded by snipers during a patrol on Sunday night in a poor neighborhood of this teeming city, becoming the first American military casualty here since the ouster of President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, a military spokesman said Monday. Meanwhile, Mr. Aristide arrived in Kingston, Jamaica, at about 1:45 p.m. after an overnight flight on a chartered jet from the Central African Republic, where he had taken refuge after his departure from Haiti on Feb. 29. Mr. Aristide’s spokesman in Jamaica, Huntley Medley, said Mr. Aristide thanked the Jamaican government and people for allowing him to come for a visit. Mr. Aristide is expected to remain several weeks, and will be reunited with his two young daughters, whom he sent to the United States when Haiti’s situation began to deteriorate. Full Story
