Hundreds in Haiti attend funeral for former dictator 'Baby Doc' Duvalier

Friends and family of Haiti's late Dictator Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier carry his flag draped coffin back to the funeral home after his funeral ceremony in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Saturday, Oct. 11, 2014. Many had wondered whether the self-proclaimed "president for life" would receive a state funeral following his death last Saturday from a heart attack at age 63, but Duvalier's attorney announced late this week that friends and family would arrange a simple and private funeral.
