Pro-government Haitians burn tires, demand arrest

Port-au-Prince, Haiti, CANA - Pro-government supporters set up 
flaming tire barricades in and around the Haitian capital yesterday to 
counter opposition protests against newly elected President 
Jean-Bertrand Aristide. 

The Aristide supporters also called for the arrest of opposition leader 
Gerard Gourgue, who was proclaimed an alternative president of the 
Caribbean nation by supporters, private Radio Kiskeya reported. By 
afternoon, the ashes of burned tires and barricades built with rocks 
blocked several thoroughfares in Port-au-Prince, capital of the poorest 
nation in the Americas.
