A UN Peacekeeper takes cover behind national police officers while demonstrators throw rocks, during a protest against the country's electoral council to mark the 25th anniversary of first democratic election in 1990, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Wednesday, Dec. 16. The demonstrators started throwing rocks after UN Peacekeepers from Brazil fired teargas into the crowd. Disputed election results have brought a renewed surge of paralyzing street protests and many broad accusations of electoral fraud from civil society and opposition groups that it is not clear whether a Dec. 27 presidential runoff between the top two finishers can take place as scheduled.
