 A Christian man screams, 'Those people are responsible for the aftershocks and we shouldn't let them do this devilish thing,' after a mob attacked a Haitian Voodoo ceremony for earthquake victims in the Ti Ayiti neighborhood February 23, 2010 in Cité Soleil, Haiti. The Voodooists were run out of the central pavilion under a hail of rocks and all the ceremonial items they left behind were destroyed and burned by the mob. Although a multi-million dollar police station was built across the street from the notorious slum, no police appeared to disperse the crowd or protect the worshipers.
