Port-au-Prince, 29/01/2010
The MarchŽ Hyppolite, also known as the MarchŽ en Fer burns along with other parts of the downtown of Port-au-Prince. This market dates to 1849 and is inscribed with slogans of work and fraternity. I has been set ablaze by arsonists, probably as part of retaliation against store owners who have fought back against looters. Note woman in yellow dress in lower right trying to put out the fire in her stall with a small bucket and water from the gutter.
