Canada sends more armored vehicles to Haiti
The Canadian Armed Forces airlifted more armored vehicles to Haiti as police in Port-au-Prince struggle to contain a gang crisis.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also said Wednesday Canada is working with countries in the region to plan possible responses if the situation further deteriorates.
The armored vehicles were purchased by the Haitian government. It is the second such shipment since October, when both Canada and the U.S. sent some armored vehicles to Haiti.
The federal government release on the second shipment did not say which companies made the tanks, how much they cost or how many were sent. However a government official, who was granted anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the matter, said there were three tanks, including two of the same model.
