Haiti's former soldiers ordered from barracks

Help

The Haitian government has ordered a group of former soldiers and new recruits out of an old military base in the capital which they had taken over.

Dozens of men and women have been training for weeks in the old barracks in an attempt to revive the Haitian army, which was disbanded 18 years ago.

President Michel Martelly has said that even though one of his goals is to put together a new defense force, it will be through legal means.
