Former dictator Jean-Claude “Baby Doc” Duvalier has returned to Haiti, the country’s national television has said..
The stunning development caught the nation off-guard in a moment of political crisis.
Mr Duvalier landed on an Air France plane around 5.50pm on Sunday local time.
He wore a dark suit and blue tie. He was greeted at the airport with hugs from supporters.
He was taken into an immigration office before customs.
Mr Duvalier fled into exile during a 1986 popular rebellion and has been living in Paris.
