The World

Violence in Haiti has killed scores of innocent civilians, caught in the crossfire. And violence is now causing disruptions to food and water supplies. Haiti doesn't actually manufacture any guns, but the country is flooded with them. US gun policies are largely to blame for this. That's the conclusion from Jacqueline Charles' reporting for the Miami Herald. She's a correspondent for the paper covering the Caribbean.
