Earlier today, Haitian police led former strongman Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier out of his hotel in Port-au-Prince. They wouldn't say if he was under arrest, but took him to the city courthouse, where he's currently still inside. MoJo photo editor Mark Murrmann was there as Duvalier (in suit and tie) arrived at the courthouse and sent these photos. Check back here for updates or follow Mac McClelland on Twitter, where she's reporting live from the scene as protesters set tire fires and a crowd waits to find out what's happening: "We're all waiting for Baby Doc to come out the courthouse door he went in."
