A vigilante group in Haiti has killed 160 people suspected of gang activity and halted kidnappings on the island since April, a Haitian civil society nonprofit says.
The vigilante movement, known as Bwa Kale, formed in late April, according to the Center for Analysis and Research in Human Rights.
Most of the gang suspects were killed in Haiti’s West Department, where the capital of Port-Au-Prince is located.
Bwa Kale’s activities have resulted in no kidnappings taking place from April 24 to May 24, according to CARDH.
In addition, 43 gang-linked slayings occurred during the same period. CARDH said 146 gang murders were recorded between April 1st and April 23.
