Haitian daily newspaper is back

Haiti's oldest newspaper Le Novelliste has began daily publication again three months after the earthquake that caused devastation on the island.
The Committee to Protect Journalists reports: "The April 6 issue not only signaled the resumption of daily publication, it marked a return to some normality, said Frantz Duval, the daily’s new editor-in-chief. Max Chauvet,the newspaper’s owner, said the revival of Le Nouvelliste,the only daily in Haiti, was an important step in re-establishing free expression and the free flow of information in the country.
"In the weeks after the earthquake, the paper published 12 occasional issues as a way to keep the print edition alive, the newspaper’s managers said. The paper’s Web site, however, was regularly updated by staff after the earthquake.Duval said all staff journalists with Le Nouvelliste have resumed work."
