President Prosper Avril said seven people died and 75 others were wounded when his Presidential Guard put down a revolt by soldiers of the Dessalines Barracks.

Avril, whose 6-month-old government has been shaken by two recent uprisings apparently triggered by a crackdown on drug trafficking, refrained Monday from predicting Haiti's future, saying, "I don't know how tomorrow will be."A state of emergency and a dusk-to-dawn curfew would continue for at least the next three days, Avril said in his first news conference since the second revolt began last week.
