  • RETRANSMISSION TO CORRECT DATE--Demonstrators yell during the funeral of slain journalist Jean Dominique in Port-au-Prince, Haiti Saturday, April 8, 2000. Jean Dominique, 69, was killed Monday by two unidentified gunmen as he pulled into the courtyard of Radio Haiti Inter, the station he owned and directed. At least nine people have died in politically related killings since March 28 amid street violence spurred by frustrations over the government's inability to set a solid date for elections to replace the parliament that Preval dissolved in January 1999 after months of disagreements. The vote was originally to take place late last year. (AP Photo/Daniel Morel) DANIEL MOREL / AP

  • Former Haitian president Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier sits in a courtroom on February 28, 2013 in Port-au-Prince. Duvalier appeared in court Thursday for a hearing to determine if he can be charged with crimes against humanity. Duvalier, who was observed at the court by an AFP reporter, was summoned by a judge after failing three times previously to show up in court. Duvalier ruled from 1971 until his ouster in a popular revolt in 1986. He returned from exile in France two years ago. Former opposition figures have accused Duvalier of deploying the feared Tonton Macoute militia and of complicity in murder, torture and kidnapping. Duvalier, 61, wore a dark suit and white shirt as sat in the packed courtroom with his companion Veronique Roy. Many of those on hand were former victims of the Duvalier regime who planned to testify against him. AFP PHOTO / Thony BELIZAIRETHONY BELIZAIRE/AFP/Getty Images THONY BELIZAIRE / AFP/Getty Images
