Haiti's leader shows few gains since election

Port-au-Prince, Haiti, CANA-Reuters - Haitian President 
Jean-Bertrand Aristide has made little headway during his first 100 
days back in power in dealing with a political crisis and heightened 
worries about crime, academics and opposition politicians say. 

Since taking up a second term on Feb. 7, Aristide remains the 
impoverished Caribbean country's most popular politician and has 
unveiled a U.N.-backed plan to battle AIDS in Haiti, where some 
333,000 of 7.8 million people have the disease. Aristide, a former 
Roman Catholic priest, has renovated public parks and the airport 
and has been working on carrying out political reforms agreed with 
the United States.
