Exiled dictator 'Baby Doc' Duvalier returns to Haiti

The former dictator of Haiti, Jean-Claude Duvalier, also known as 'Baby Doc', has returned to the country 26 years after he was overthrown. He greeted crowds of supporters, but did not say why he chose to return or what he would do. Duvalier inherited power from his father at 19 and presided over one of the darkest chapters in Haitian history. He is accused of torturing and killing political opponents, ruling in an atmosphere of fear and repression ensured by his feared secret police force.
