Haiti: Police use tear gas, live ammunition to break protests


Thousands of people have taken to the streets on Friday in Port-au-Prince and other cities amid violent protest against President Jovenel Moïse.

The protests were among the largest and most violent in months, with witnesses reporting that a special unit of the Haitian National Police was looted and a police vehicle set on fire.

In the wealthier neighborhoods of Delmas and Petion Ville, angry crowds also looted several stores, banks and money transfer offices, ATMs and pharmacies. They also set a building on fire.

Police used tear gas and live ammunition to disperse increasingly violent protesters.

Many are calling for Jovenel Moise to stand down after what they say is a failure to address the myriad of problems.
