UN accommodates human rights abuses by police in Haiti




A plainclothes Haitian police officer stands next to corpse of Lavalas demonstrator after planting a handgun. An anonymous journalist declared, "I filmed the dead bodies of demonstrators killed by the police. The police put a gun in the left hand of one of the corpses. After they saw me filming they asked me to come and film the gun in his hand. I couldn't believe it."
