US Embassy urges all Americans to leave Haiti' as soon as possible'
Updated: Sep 3
The U.S. Embassy in Port-au-Prince on Wednesday urged citizens in Haiti to leave "as soon as possible" citing security and infrastructure challenges, as escalating violence has left thousands displaced and sent homicides soaring.
"U.S. citizens in Haiti should depart Haiti as soon as possible via commercial or private transport," the embassy said in a statement, urging extreme caution.
Earlier this month, the U.S. Embassy in the capital Port-au-Prince temporarily closed, due to gunfire in the vicinity.
