Haitians protest election delay amid UN visit

Haiti swears in provisional election council to try to curb protests hours before UN Security Council members arrive.

    Haiti has sworn in a provisional election council just hours before the arrival of members from the United Nations Security Council.

    But as protests against the president continue, the country is still locked in political crisis.
