Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “U.S. ‘Willing to Support’ Haiti’s Probe of Moise Assassination: Psaki” – below is their description.
Police were seen arresting two men Thursday believed to be suspected of participating in the Wednesday assassination of President Jovenel Moïse
They were arrested following a gunfight.
On Thursday, Léon Charles, director of Haiti’s National Police told Radio Métropole that a total of six suspects had been arrested and seven killed and that police were are still looking for more of them.
Two of the six suspects were arrested Thursday after a crowd found them hiding in some bushes in Port-au-Prince.
Officials did not provide any details about the suspects, including their nationalities, nor did they address a motive or say what led police to them. They said only that the attack condemned by Haiti’s main opposition parties and the international community was carried out by “a highly trained and heavily armed group,” whose members spoke Spanish or English.
Prime Minister Claude Joseph assumed leadership of Haiti with the backing of police and the military, and decreed a two-week state of siege following Moïse’s killing, which stunned a nation grappling with some of the Western Hemisphere’s highest poverty, violence and political instability.
According to Haiti’s constitution, Moïse should be replaced by the president of Haiti’s Supreme Court, but the chief justice died in recent days from COVID-19, leaving open the question of who might rightfully succeed to the office.Bloomberg Quicktake: Now YouTube Channel
