Former Fugees frontman Wyclef Jean shot in Haiti hours before voting starts

Hip-hop star Wyclef Jean has been shot in his native Haiti on the eve of presidential elections on the Caribbean island.
The former Fugees frontman was blasted in the hand just after 11pm in the city of Delmas, just outside the capital Port-au-Prince and was rushed to hospital for treatment.
Details of the shooting remain unclear, but Jean, who lives in the U.S., is a high-profile supporter of presidential candidate and fellow musician Michel Martelly.
The American-Haitian singer's own bid for president ended when he was disqualified from standing last August. The country's constitution requires candidates to have lived there for five years before an election and Jean lives in the U.S.
Haiti's voters are due to go to the ballot box later today to pick a president to lead a country where anger with the government runs deep and nearly a million people are living on the streets.
The election is clouded with uncertainty over the return of ousted former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, a popular but divisive figure whose mere presence was considered by the U.S. government and others as a possible threat to the vote.
Alongside political new-comer 'Sweet Micky' Martelly, a star of Haitian compas music, is Mirlande Manigat, the former first lady and law professor.
Both emerged as the top two finishers in a first-round vote in November with 18 candidates that was marred by fraud and disorganization.
Whoever wins will face major challenges, including a Senate and Chamber of Deputies controlled by the party of outgoing President Rene Preval, who was barred by the constitution from running for re-election, and re-building the nation crippled by last year's huge earthquake.
