Even by the standard of Haitian rebels, Guy Philippe was acting pretty confidently for a man on the Drug Enforcement Administration’s list of wanted drug traffickers.

"Rebel. Drug Fugitive. Hero? Haiti Erupts Over an Arrest" is from the January 12, 2017 World section of The New York Times. It was written by Frances Robles and narrated by Caroline Miller.
