Insurgents tighten the noose around the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince, free prisoners in the town of Mirabaleis and reportedly seize the town of Les Cayes, just south of Port-au-Prince. Looting breaks out in the capital, and pressure mounts on President Jean Bertrand Aristide to resign. Aristide, however, says he plans on serving out his term until 2006. NPR's Martin Kaste reports from Haiti.
