February 8, 1986: Port-Au-Prince, Haiti — A military-civilian council took power Friday after so-called President-for-Life Jean-Claude Duvalier fled to France. The apparent end of 28 years of Duvalier family rule sparked rejoicing and then looting, revenge killing and a curfew in effect for 16 hours a day. Army chief of staff Gen. Henri Namphy said on national television that he was head of the new council and that the military has no political ambitions, “not now or ever.”
