Protesters were throwing stones and bottles at police, who blocked their way near the presidential palace. Two Haitian officers have been injured, and police fired shots in the air to disperse the crowd.

Hundreds of people joined Tuesday's march organized by Aristide's Fanmi Lavalas Party. The rally ended peacefully in songs and chanted demands for the resignation of President Rene Preval, a former protege of the ousted leader.

Tuesday is the 18th anniversary of the day Aristide was elected president of the Caribbean nation. He fled Haiti amid a 2004 uprising and is living in exile in South Africa.
