Haiti Riots after Pres Election Sign In or Register to add photos

The headquarters of Haiti's ruling party was set ablaze Wednesday as riots grew over disputed presidential election results. Thousands of protesters took to the streets of the capital, erecting barricades and setting fires, furious that government-backed candidate Jude Celestin, the protege of unpopular President Rene Preval, apparently will go on to a runoff vote while carnival singer Michel "Sweet Micky" Martelly finished third in official results and is probably eliminated. Protests have also broken out in Les Cayes, Cap-Haitien and other cities.
