Updated: 2005-04-10 09:46

One of the leaders of an armed revolt that ousted Haiti's ex-President Jean-Bertrand Aristide last year has been killed in a shoot-out with Haitian police and UN civilian police.

UN spokesman Daniel Moskaluk said Remissainthe Ravix, who led disgruntled members of Haiti's disbanded military, was killed during a joint operation by Haitian and UN police in Port-au-Prince.

Moskaluk said Ravix was killed when he tried to resist arrest by firing at the police and UN police after a raid on a complex in the Delmas industrial district where he and several of his supporters had taken refuge.

Ravix was one of the leaders of an armed rebellion that forced Aristide to flee into exile on February 29 last year.

He was also wanted by Haitian police in connection with the killing of four policemen in February.
