dc.description.abstract Deposed military leader, General Prosper Avril flew into exile this morning aboard an American military plane after days of violent unrest and demonstrations.

Irate protesters call on the United States to deport General Avril back to Haiti to face a trial. Following the Financial News, the Grenadians go to the polls tomorrow and the report explores the possibility of a coalition government if no one party wins a majority.
