PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) -- Rights groups and other activists say there is a growing use of threats and sometimes outright violence in Haiti to clear out sprawling camps that are home to some 320,000 people still homeless since the country's 2010 earthquake.
A standoff at one camp last month has become a symbol of the problem for many people. It set off a chain of events that left several shelters burned and a camp resident dead.
The confrontation occurred a little more than a week before the human rights group Amnesty International issued a report on the jump of camp evictions seen in Haiti this year.
