Deadly larceny over land in Haiti

This land is my land!
In Haiti, people are killing each other over land.
CBC's Connie Watson returned to Haiti this year and discovered a violent standoff that's stifling recovery. Your land or your life!
It's a murderous row over land title, and disaster victims are prey.
It's a country where few can actually produce a deed to their property, and that's a big incentive for others to try and force them off.
There's hope the earthquake that's left more than a million homeless might prompt a reform of the country's chaotic system of land ownership.
But nothing so far.
Instead, it's anarchy. And sometimes a violent free-for-all, as we heard last June from Connie.
