Haiti's ex-ruler 'Baby Doc' Duvalier attends court

Haiti's former ruler Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier has appeared in court for a hearing to determine if he can be charged with crimes against humanity.

It was the first time Mr Duvalier, who failed to appear at previous hearings, had faced some of his alleged victims.

He returned to Haiti in 2011 after spending 25 years in exile in France.

Human rights groups say hundreds of political prisoners were tortured or killed under Mr Duvalier's rule from 1971 to 1986.
