PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — Thousands of Haitians demanding that last month's presidential election be annulled clashed with supporters of the government, resulting in at least one death.
Associated Press journalists saw a man dead apparently from a bullet wound being carted away in a wheelbarrow and another man was hospitalized after being hit in the head with a machete.

Authorities made no comment on the violence.
Friday's protest began peacefully but when the crowd approached the Delmas district of Port-au-Prince it was attacked by pro-government supporters who threw rocks and bottles.
The protesters were supporters of several of the 54 candidates in the Oct. 25 presidential election. Preliminary results announced this month said Martelly-backed candidate Jovenel Moise and Jude Celestin finished first and second to win spots in the Dec. 27 runoff.
