Haiti's government requests international help following two weeks of uprisings against President Jean-Bertrand Aristide. Opponents accuse Aristide of election fraud and corruption. Ten years ago, U.S. troops helped restore him to power after a violent uprising, and many Haitians see the roots of the current unrest in that U.S. intervention. NPR's Martin Kaste reports.
