Gen. Prosper Avril, Haiti's provisional president, said Friday night that a state of siege imposed a week ago will be lifted Tuesday. In a televised address, Avril said emergency measures were made necessary by a wave of crimes, including action by "anarchists" and sabotage of the economy. He said the slaying of an army colonel by unidentified gunmen Jan. 19 had infuriated troops. "There was no other choice" but to take emergency measures "to safeguard the young democracy," he said.

The military government exiled six leading political activists Sunday, a day after it declared a state of siege, arrested critics and banished a prominent opponent, sources and family members said. Critics said the actions indicate that Haiti's ruler, Lt. Gen. Prosper Avril, plans to renege on promises to hold free elections this year. All of those exiled were beaten when they were arrested, according to activists and other sources.
