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.
