Haiti Update

October 04, 1994

U.S. soldiers raid the Port-au-Prince headquarters of the pro-army militia FRAPH, seizing weapons and arresting some 40 people. Crowds of Haitians cheer them on.

An American soldier was shot in the stomach Sunday in an exchange of gunfire in Les Cayes, the first an American soldier wounded in the Haiti operation.

The first big wave of international peacekeepers lands to supplement the Americans and eventually replace some 6,000 of them.

The U.S. Coast Guard cutter Midgett repatriates 485 Haitian refugees, all of whom apparently volunteered to return from Guantanamo Bay in Cuba.
