Protests Break Out in Haiti

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) - Demonstrators are back in the
streets in Haiti, but today's protests have been calmer than the
anti-U.N. rioting earlier in the week.

On Monday, two people were killed in riots sparked by suspicions
that U.N. peacekeepers from Nepal brought cholera to Haiti.

The month-old outbreak has killed more than 1,000 people.

U.N. officials haven't tried to determine the source of the
outbreak, but they deny responsibility. They say the protests are
meant to disrupt the Nov. 28 presidential elections.

Anti-government demonstrators staged a small, relatively
peaceful march today in the capital, Port-au-Prince. Some burned
campaign posters for the candidate of the ruling Unity party and
chanted "Unity equals cholera."

In Cap-Haitien (kahp haht-YEN'), Haiti's second-largest city,
some protesters threw rocks at police who tried to remove flaming
barriers.
