Haiti's death toll rises in Cite Soleil

Kevin Pina interviews Haiti's legendary folksinger and human rights activist Annette Auguste, affectionately known as "So Ann."

Auguste addresses the recent military actions of the UN in the seaside shanty town of Cite Soleil and the plight of political prisoners still held in Haitian jails.

Pina also provides an update and analysis on the situation in Cite Soleil where more than 15 people are reported to have been felled by UN gunfire over the past week alone.

"When I left Haiti a week ago they [the UN] had killed four young boys between the ages of 4 and 7. Were they kidnappers too? -Annette Auguste
