Reports of unrest are surfacing in the Republic of Haiti.
Local sources today say U.S. forces have taken control of the country’s major international airport.
This builds on a statement released by the State Department Friday, warning Americans not to travel around Haiti in the upcoming days.
Demonstrations are expected to take place over the weekend, to protest against excessive spending and taxes throughout the country.
However, local activist groups are saying the U.S. presence could suggest something larger.
