http://www.bbc.com/news/world-latin-america-29492262Haiti's former ruler Jean-Claude "Baby Doc" Duvalier has died of a heart attack in the capital Port-au-Prince, reports quoting official sources say.
Duvalier was just 19 when in 1971 he inherited the title of "president-for-life" from his father, the notorious Francois "Papa Doc" Duvalier.
He was accused of corruption, human rights abuses and repression in his rule, which ended in a 1986 uprising.
After years of exile in France, he returned to Haiti in 2011.
His death was announced by Haiti's health minister, and the ex-leader's attorney Reynold Georges confirmed he died at home on Saturday.
Human rights groups say hundreds of political prisoners were tortured or killed under his rule, and he was accused of massive corruption.
Like his father, he ruled with an iron fist, relying on a brutal militia known as the Tontons Macoutes to control the country.
In 1986, he was forced from power by a popular uprising and US diplomatic pressure, and went into exile in France.
