Incident: Temporary office closures, Haiti

A number of NGOs temporarily closed their offices today due to election-related protests in Port-Au-Prince. Presidential frontrunner Rene Preval's lead has declined below the 50% mark and it appears a run-off election will need to take place in March. This will likely lead to more protests and violence from Preval supporters who believe the election was tampered with.
