Ten pro-Aristide lawmakers landed in Haiti on a U.S. chartered jetliner, ending their three-year exile with a trip straight to the Parliament building in Port-au-Prince. This afternoon, they convened with other members of the Assembly to debate and vote on a spate of bills to prepare for ousted President Jean-Bertrand Aristide's return. At the top of their list: an Aristide-backed proposal to grant amnesty to Lt. Gen. Raoul Cedras and junta supporters. TIME correspondent Bernard Diederich, who was there, said hundreds of jubilant Haitians surrounded the building, chanting "Handcuff Cedras!" as U.S. troops stood by. A few blocks away, the pro-junta forces struck back, critically wounding one man. Back inside the parliament, a quorum of legislators began debate on the amnesty measure, with a majority apparently supporting it. But the vote won't be a cakewalk, Diederich says, because the Haitian constitution allows no amnesty for "crimes of blood."
