Haiti: January 13, 2005


Police continue to encounter rocks thrown by angry citizens, and gunfire from gangs who do not appreciate police presence. The gangs have learned to operate in small groups. Anything larger attracts large numbers of peacekeepers, who have armored vehicles, helicopters and a lot more firepower.

Dozens, or hundreds, of suspects are sometimes hauled away for questioning.
