Victims of the Haitian Military - Forces Armee de Haiti (FADH)
Port au Prince - 1991


"The barbarity of the Haitian Military is used to terrorize Aristide supporters. As many as 3000 unarmed civilians may have been killed to date [this caption written in 1991 during the first three weeks of the coup] based on morgue counts in the cities.

However, the majority of President Aristide's support is in the countryside where very few reporters or human rights organizations have dared to venture. We may never know the exact number of victims as reports have circulated of mass burials in unmarked graves throughout the countryside.
