Haiti's 'Baby Doc' seeks forgiveness





Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier, the exiled former dictator of Haiti, has belatedly asked his countrymen to forgive "wrongs" committed by his regime in an apparent bid to soften opposition to him returning there.

In a speech recorded in Paris, where he has reportedly been living in growing poverty, Duvalier urged supporters to rally around his small political party.

It was Duvalier's first public address in years and the speech was broadcast across the impoverished Caribbean country that he and his father, Francois "Papa Doc" Duvalier, did so much to ruin.
