2 Dead in Haiti as Protesters Demand the Removal of President Jovenel Moise

Protesters denouncing corruption blocked roads and paralyzed much of Haiti’s capital as they demanded the removal of President Jovenel Moise, while police reported two people killed and five injured. Demonstrators burned tires and threw stones during the march in Port-au-Prince, where the scent of burning rubber filled the air. Many stores and gas stations were closed and travel between some cities was impeded as protesters blocked roads with cars, stones and other large objects. Police erected barricades near the presidential palace and fired tear gas to drive away demonstrators who tried to breach them. Police spokesman Michael-Ange Jeunes said gunshots caused the two deaths and wounded four people.
