Haitian Protests Raise U.S. Concerns

The Bush administration warns U.S. travelers not to visit Haiti, citing rising safety and transportation concerns. A small military team is also being sent to Haiti to assess the security of the U.S. embassy. Leaders of militant anti-Aristide groups have called on Haitian police to abandon their posts, promising new assaults on the nation's cities. Hear NPR's Michele Norris and NPR's Martin Kaste.
