Lt. Gen. Prosper Avril's military government worked Monday to restore its authority after crushing a revolt by army units in two days of fierce fighting.

The government appeared to be firmly in control after the rebellion, which followed a failed military coup eight days ago. Shops, offices and schools were open and traffic was back to normal in Port-au-Prince, this Caribbean nation's capital of 1 million people.Government communiques released late Sunday lifted news censorship and eased an overnight curfew.

Only sporadic shooting was heard in Port-au-Prince overnight, and one body was found in a street early Monday.
