Diaspora watches 'Baby Doc' return

Haitians in the United States have mixed feeling about the former presdent.

    The return of Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier has captured the attention - and concern - of many Haitians in the United States.

    Many there believe that he should be held accountable for his government's repression over 25 years ago, and others voice concerns over the timing of the move, worried that it could push the country into further instability.
