Gangsters Kill 12 In Haiti: Mayor
Gang members in Haiti killed 12 people and burned down houses in a town near the capital, an official said Wednesday.
Police and residents had ejected gangsters from the town of Cabaret several days ago but they returned and attacked Tuesday night, said Mayor Joseph Jeanson Guillaume.
"This morning we found several charred bodies," the mayor told local Media.
Powerful and heavily armed Gangs that control much of Haiti have been targeting Cabaret for months. Cabaret sits along a major road, meaning attacks on it disrupt traffic and trade, said the mayor.
