Jean-Bertrand Aristide,

president of Haiti, resigned in February, under intense pressure from the United States, France, and his political opponents, and went into exile. He was strongly criticized for failing to fight poverty and government corruption. Violent protests rocked Haiti during its January 2004 bicentennial celebrations, with armed rebels capturing major cities and demanding that Aristide step down.
