Hundreds march in Haiti after outrage over Evelyne Sincère
Updated: Dec 13, 2020
Hundreds of protesters, many dressed in school uniforms, marched through the streets of Port-au-Prince on Thursday to demand answers after the kidnapping and killing of a young woman that has incensed the nation.
High school senior Evelyne Sincère was found in a trash heap Sunday after relatives said they were unable to pay the large ransom demanded by her captors.
Human rights groups contend the incident highlights the nation’s worsening security crisis.
“I am worried,” said Katy Jean-Joseph, 19, who marched while carrying a photo of Sincère. “What happened to Evelyne could have happened to me.”
