'Baby Doc' Duvalier returns to Haiti from exile

The former president of Haiti, Jean-Claude Duvalier, has returned to the country, 25 years after he was overthrown by a popular revolt.

Mr Duvalier, 59, also known as "Baby Doc", arrived on a flight from France where he had been living in exile.

It was not clear what prompted his return, but he said he wanted "to help the people of Haiti" following last year's devastating earthquake.

He arrives amid political uncertainty after disputed presidential elections.
