Aristide Returns to Haiti

On a normal day, the return of former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide to his native Haiti would be top of the news programmes.

But it's been a long time since we;ve had a normal day, news-wise.

Here are some intimate photos of the event via Sharif Koudous of Democracy Now. Sharif was one of the best first-hand sources of English-language reporting on Twitter during the Egyptian revolution.
He's now in Haiti providing similar first-hand updates.
