Haitians take to the streets to protest over the increasing insecurity


Protests in Haiti over the increasing insecurity turned violent in some places like the southern city of Les Cayes, where people stormed the local airport and attacked a small plane owned by a U.S. missionary group from Sarasota County.

At least one person died and five others were injured, including four police officers, in the confrontation between protesters and authorities in Les Cayes.


National Police inspector Gedeon Chery said the person killed was a protester who was shot, but he didn't say whether police were responsible.

The protests coincided with the 35th anniversary of Haiti's 1987 Constitution and followed other protests amid a spike in gang-related kidnappings.
