Gunmen open fire on TV and radio station in Haiti

Men fired automatic weapons on a TV and radio station in Haiti's capital, injuring a street vendor.

Radio-Tele Ginen's Port-au-Prince building was riddled with bullets as journalists delivered a newscast early Tuesday evening, Haitian police spokesman Frantz Lerebours said.

Rounds ricocheted off a jeep belonging to the station and hit a nearby street vendor, station owner Jean Lucien Borges said. The vendor was being treated at a local hospital.

No one was injured inside the station, which kept broadcasting throughout the attack. "We thought it was just regular shooting," Borges said.

The private station, which beams a broad array of television and radio coverage across the restive Caribbean country, is not aligned with any political party. No arrests have been made.
