dc.description.abstract The Haitian Electoral Council has announced 4th November 1990 as the date of the long awaited general elections of the country and the army has promised to guarantee security during the elections period. Many Haitians are unconvinced by the army’s promise and according to Jean-Bertrand Aristide only the United States can bring some semblance of order within the Haitian army. Following the Financial News, four executions carried out in Guyana last month prompted Amnesty International to issue a report expressing concern over the resumption of executions in Guyana and calls on the Guyanese government to change all death sentences. In the last segment, football fans around the world bade farewell to the Cameroon’s World Cup team after a 3-2 defeat against England in the quarter-finals. The feat of being the first Third World nation to advance to the World Cup quarter-finals serves as an inspiration to the Trinidad and Tobago World Cup team who did not qualify due a 1-0 defeat against the United States. en_US
