A Picture and its Story: Pistol-packing senators confront Haiti's angry opposition
When Senator Jean Marie Ralph Fethiere pulled a pistol and started shooting outside the Haitian parliament on Monday, to disperse what has described as "violent militants", Reuters photographer Andres Martinez Casares was prepared for trouble. A little earlier another senator, Willot Joseph, was seen with a pistol in his hand when confronted by angry opposition protesters as he arrived at the parliament for the appointment of Prime Minister Fritz William Michel. Casares realised that things could get nasty. "We decided to go and get our bulletproof vests and helmets. The situation was turning tricky." In fact the situation got a lot more tricky when Fethiere also pulled a gun, shooting into the air and at the ground, injuring an Associated Press photographer and a security guard. Fethiere later told a local radio station he was acting in self-defence. REUTERS/Andres Martinez Casares SEARCH "DIEU NALIO CASARES" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
