    Reeling from the murder of its president, Haiti has declared a two-week state of emergency as law enforcement hunt for the assassins. So far, at least four suspects have been killed in a gun battle after Jovenel Moise’s death.

    Officials have pledged to find all those responsible for the raid on Moise’s house. The interim prime minister, Claude Joseph, said on television: ‘I am calling for calm. Everything is under control. This barbaric act will not remain unpunished.’

    Moise was shot at least a dozen times and died at the scene, according to Carl Henry Destin, a judicial official, who said the president’s office and bedroom were ransacked and he was found lying on his back, covered in blood.

    In This Story: Haiti

    Haiti is a Caribbean country that shares the island of Hispaniola with the Dominican Republic to its east. Though it’s still recovering from a 2010 earthquake, many of Haiti’s landmarks dating to the early 19th century remain intact. These include Citadelle la Ferrière, a mountaintop fortress.

    Jean-Jacques Dessalines (later Emperor Jacques I), defeated Napoleon Bonaparte’s forces and declared Haiti’s sovereignty on 1 January 1804.

    Haiti became the only state in history established by a successful slave revolt. Apart from Alexandre Pétion, the first President of the Republic, all of Haiti’s first leaders were former slaves.
