'Baby Doc' Duvalier is back in Haiti after exile

The former president of Haiti, Jean-Claude Duvalier, has returned to the country, 25 years after he was overthrown by a popular revolt.

Mr Duvalier, also known as Baby Doc, arrived on a flight from France, where he has been living in exile.

It is not immediately clear why he has returned to Haiti, where he is accused of massive corruption.

The BBC contacted a US journalist living in the capital Port-au-Prince, Ansel Herz.
