Police fire tear gas at Haiti protesters

Police disperse hundreds of protesters with tear gas, as frustration with the government continues to rise.

    Police have used tear gas to break up an anti-government protest in Haiti's capital in one of a growing number of demonstrations in the Caribbean island nation over the past few months.

    Protesters are frustrated at the rising cost of living and the opposition says an election is more than two years overdue.
