THE BALTIMORE SUN

Army commander Raoul Cedras and Brigadier-General Phillip Biamby presided over a military funeral in Port-au-Prince for 10 Haitians killed by U.S. marines in a shootout in the northern city of Cap-Haitian Sept. 24. Cedras repeatedly buried his face in his hand during the service.

Defense Secretary William Perry expressed surprise that there's not been more violence in Haiti since U.S. troops entered the country three weeks ago.

South African President Nelson Mandela will meet with Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide in Washington today and press him to heal, not aggravate, Haiti's bloody divisions.
