Haiti - FLASH : Stone throw and shots, evacuation of the President !
Friday in the early afternoon, President Jovenel Moïse returned from New York and was greeted in the jubilation at Toussaint Louverture International Airport by several hundreds of PHTK activists and sympathizers, most of whom came from Les Cayes and for which had a dozen buses put at their disposal...

When he left the airport Jovenel greeted the citizens who came to welcome him and walked with them during part of the route that was to take him to his private residence.

Unfortunately, this joyful event, which was supposed to be a "good kid" walk, went wrong as his procession and the crowd approached the airport's crossroads. According to a note from the presidency, in spite of an impressive security device, "individuals who were ambushed in the zone fired several shots and stone throws towards the crowd that followed him at Boulevard Toussaint Louverture and Delmas (Carrefour airport)" triggering panic in the crowd and forcing the security agents closer to the President, to carry out the emergency evacuation of the Head of State to make it safe.

The imposing the Haitian National Police (PNH) security apparatus, backed by special units, had to use tear gas, acidulated water cannon and gunfire in an attempt to control the panic.

The presidency condemns this new infringement of peace and property and urges the sponsors and authors of these actions to regain control.

Note that Jovenel Moïse is safe and sound.
