Ex-dictator 'Baby Doc' returns to Haiti

Ousted strongman Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier returned to Haiti on Sunday after some 25 years in exile as the country wrestled with a post-election crisis.

Duvalier, wearing a blue suit and a tie and accompanied by his wife, was making his way through customs at Port-au-Prince's international airport after arriving on an Air France flight, an AFP journalist witnessed.
