Former Haitian president Jean-Bertrand Aristide made a rare public appearance Wednesday, causing thousands of his supporters to pour out into the streets of the capital.
The former Roman Catholic priest known as a champion of Haiti's poor and reviled by the Caribbean nation's elite was in court to testify before a judge about the 2000 murder of prominent journalist Jean Dominique.
Aristide was not in power then, but rather a leader of the opposition. He was questioned Wednesday as part of a broad, long running probe into the killing.
