BROOKLYN - A local Haitian radio station has taken to the airwaves to express outrage over former dictator Jean-Claude Duvalier's return to Haiti over the weekend.

Manager Rico Dupuy, of Radio Soleil in Flatbush, says all of their air time has been overwhelmed by calls from Brooklyn's Haitian community following Duvalier's unexpected return from exile after 25 years.

Duvalier, also known as "Baby Doc," allegedly killed and tortured thousands in the 1970s.

Dupuy says people are expressing their anger because many who suffered under his rule are still alive today.
