Haitian rebels seize Cap-Haitien, the country's second-largest city. Rebels have driven government forces from half of Haiti and are now focused on the capital, Port-au-Prince. Cap-Haitien's fall came a day after a U.S.-led peace mission failed to get the opposition to agree to a peace deal with President Jean-Bertrand Aristide's government. Hear NPR's Martin Kaste.
