Armed Groups Ransack National Library in Haiti



Armed groups ransacked the National Library of Haiti yesterday, April 3, endangering its priceless archival collections pertinent to the Caribbean nation’s history and cultural heritage. 


“We have rare documents over 200 years old, with importance to our heritage, which risk being burned or damaged by bandits,” the library’s director, Dangelo Néard said.


The raid on the library, located in the capital city of Port-au-Prince, follows two attacks on universities last week.


Established in 1939, the National Library holds a collection of rare books, manuscripts, and newspaper archives significant to the country’s history.
