17562: Lemieux: Cleveland Plain Dealer: defer nonessential travel to Haiti at this time. (fwd)

Haiti sees rise in civil unrest


Larry Habegger and James O'Reilly
Special to The Plain Dealer

Civil unrest has increased in long-troubled Haiti, as
students and others opposed to the government have staged
demonstrations around the country. Some have turned
violent. Large protests occurred in Port-au-Prince,
Gonaives, Cap Haitien, Petit Goave and Jacmel. The U.S.
Embassy closed Dec. 12 for security reasons and might close
again if conditions dictate or to assess its "security
posture." Americans should defer nonessential travel to
Haiti at this time.
