'Baby Doc' Duvalier leaving hospital in Haiti


PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) -- Former Haitian dictator Jean-Claude Duvalier is being discharged from a hospital in the country's capital.

Two SUVs and a police escort were waiting outside the hospital Tuesday to take the ex-strongman known as "Baby Doc" home. Family friend Enzo Alcindor says Duvalier is heading to the villa where he is under house arrest.

Alcindor says he does not have any information about Duvalier's health.

Duvalier was admitted to the hospital Wednesday night after complaining of chest pains.

The 59-year-old former dictator returned to Haiti in January after 25 years in exile. He is now under investigation on a long list of charges including corruption and violations of human rights during his rule of the impoverished country.
