FILE - In this Jan. 30, 2004 file photo, Haiti's President Jean-Bertrand Aristide listens to a journalist's question during a press conference in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Rumors of Aristide's return have circulated in Haiti for weeks. Aristide built a following among the country's poverty-stricken population as a priest-turned-activist, among the leaders of the 1986 movement to oust the despotic Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier. He became Haiti's first democratically elected leader in 1990 but was toppled a few months later by a military junta. He was ousted a second time, in the 2004 rebellion and flown into exile in South Africa. (AP Photo/Rodrigo Abd, File)
