By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Residents in Haiti are up in arms against gangs that have taken control of almost 80% of Port-au-Prince.
The Week reports that in the last week alone, 18 suspected gang members have been killed by crowds in Port-au-Prince.
On Tuesday, 5 men were killed and their bodies set on fire.
Human rights activist Vélina Élysée Charlier says that she has seen machete wielding men chasing suspected gang members.
In March, Haiti recorded the highest number of murders, rapes and kidnappings since 2005.
Last year, the United Nations suggested a “rapid action force” be sent to Haiti since the nation is suffering a humanitarian crisis caused by gangs that have expanded their territory.
