COMMENT: Reports indicate that former Fugees singer and attempted-candidate for President in Haiti received a superficial injury during a visit to support musician candidate Michel Martelly. There is no word yet indicating if the shot or shots were fired with a political motive. His attempt at political life in Haiti was controversially ended when it was ruled he didn’t meet Constitutional mandates for residency. The singer is a native Haitian but has lived in the United States for some time.
