International News: Gangs attack communities in Haiti killing more than 10 people

Posted: Monday, March 18, 2024. 1:49 pm CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Violent gangs continue to unleash violence in Haiti leaving atleast 12 people dead, The Associated Press reports.

Armed men attacked homes in the communities of  Laboule and Thomassin forcing residents to flee as some called radio stations pleading for police.

The neighborhoods had remained largely peaceful despite a surge in violent gang attacks across Port-au-Prince that began on Feb. 29.

Haitian residents are calling for assistance in restoring order to their country.

The most recent attacks raised concerns that gang violence would not cease despite Prime Minister Ariel Henry announcing nearly a week ago that he would resign once a transitional presidential council is created, a move that gangs had been demanding.

In addition, Haiti’s power company announced that four substations in the capital and elsewhere “were destroyed and rendered completely dysfunctional.”

Parts of Port-au-Prince were without power due to the destruction of the substations.

The company said criminals also seized important documents, cables, inverters, batteries and other items.

Meanwhile, the deployment of a U.N.-backed Kenyan police force to fight gangs in Haiti has been delayed, with the East African country saying it would wait until the transitional council is established.
