Scuffles on anniversary of Haiti coup

Supporters of former Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide scuffled with riot police on Tuesday as they marched through the capital Port-au-Prince on the anniversary of a 1991 military coup that ousted the country’s first democratically elected leader.

Thousands of Aristide supporters attempted to march from the church where the former president led services as a Catholic priest, to his house, but police fired tear gas to disperse them before they arrived.
