Thousands of furious supporters of exiled President Jean-Bertrand Aristide poured out of Haiti's slums and into the streets on Friday, marching on the U.S. Embassy to denounce the "occupation" of their homeland and demand Aristide's return.
The formation of a new government moved ahead with the appointment of a council of seven "wise men" charged with picking a prime minister for a transitional government.
A crowd estimated at more than 10,000 materialized suddenly, seething at Aristide's flight to Africa five days ago, hurling slurs at U.S. Marines and calling President Bush a "terrorist."
