The Haitian military's puppet president declared a state of emergency Sunday, stating that "our country is faced by extreme danger" and "risks invasion and occupation." Emile Jonassaint, 81, who was installed as president last month, announced the decree in a speech on a television network to a population with few television sets and at a time, 2 a.m., when most of the country was without electricity. He gave no details about what the state of emergency would entail.
