U.S. lawmakers call for sanctions on gangs and 'warlords' in Haiti


Two U.S. lawmakers on Thursday said the United States should sanction Haitian gangs and those who help finance them, as the country remains gripped by a gang blockade that has caused increasingly dire fuel shortages.

Gregory Meeks and Michael McCaul, during a hearing of the House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee, said the United States should take action against the gangs, which now control vast portions of Haiti's territory.


"That's something we have to start looking at - sanctions against the gang leaders, and those who are financing the gangs and those who are sending the weapons," said Meeks, a Democrat and chair of the committee.
