Today on Flashpoints, we follow the lives of those in hiding and under death threat since the US coup that drove President Aristide out of Haiti. Well speak with a youth reporter whose collegue was murdered by US backed members of the former military. We hear from Haitian human rights activist Mietzlean Wilson, also in hiding; and an Aristide official who snuck out of Haiti to brief members of congress and demand temporary asylum for the growing numbers of Haitians fleeing the violence. Well hear from an American pro-democracy activist now in Haiti protesting at the US embassy who was threatened by American soldiers. A report back from occupied Palestine where today Israeli soldiers killed two children. And of course, the Knight report.
