PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (WKOW) – People in Haiti's capital are blocking roads and attacking foreigner's vehicles in protest against U.N. peacekeepers and the government.
Protesters have been rioting for days over suspicions that U.N. soldiers introduced a cholera epidemic that has killed more than 1,000 people.
Demonstrators are setting up burning barricades while Haitian police have fired tear gas.
The protest comes a week before national elections, and marchers are destroying campaign posters for President Rene Preval's Unity party.
The U.N. military mission denies responsibility for the epidemic.
