Protesters and Police Clash in Haiti

Demonstrators demanding President Martelly resign


Protesters in Haiti have clashed with police as thousands rallied to demand the resignation of President Michel Martelly.

The police fired tear gas to try to disperse stone-throwing protesters in the capital, Port-au-Prince.

Haiti has recently seen a series of protest marches amid growing public anger over the cost of living and claims of high levels of corruption.

Meanwhile, Mr Martelly appealed for unity in the impoverished nation.
