The Haitian government has condemned what it described as “this despicable act” after gunmen fired shots at the building, housing the central office of the Electricity of Haiti (EDH) last weekend.
The Ministry of Communication said that the police and judicial authorities have been called upon to investigate the incident and to find “the actors of this terrorist act”.
The government said that significant damage had been done to the building and it “condemns with the greatest vehemence this despicable act perpetrated against a public building”.
The authorities gave no reasons why the building in the heart of the capital had come under attack.
They did not say whether anyone had been injured during the incident that occurred over two nights.
