OPINION
August 23, 1987 | Bernard Diederich, Bernard Diederich published and edited the Haiti Sun, a weekly newspaper, for 14 years until the 1960s and is co-author of "Papa Doc and the Truth about Haiti Today" (McGraw-Hill)
The Haitian army is aiming at the Haitian press. On one particularly harrowing day last month, soldiers shot and wounded two Haitian newsmen while another group of soldiers opened fire on eight foreign journalists, killing a young Haitian who had been accompanying them. The crux of the problem is the army's frustration with Haiti's new liberal constitution that was overwhelmingly endorsed in a spring referendum.
