Haiti Update

October 01, 1994

Forces loyal to Haiti's army rulers disrupt a peaceful pro-democracy march of 5,000 people in Port-au-Prince. Three people are killed and at least 11 injured.

Exiled Haiti President Jean-Bertrand Aristide appeals to his countrymen to halt the violence and not send the world "the sad image" of fighting in the streets.

U.S. troops seize the national television and radio stations, which had been broadcasting anti-American items. Officials said the action was taken at the request of the Aristide government.
