Haiti - FLASH : Rising fuels, at least two deaths and many damage in the capital
Friday, following the announcement on the social networks of a significant increase in the price of fuel fuels at the pump https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-24881-haiti-flash-the-price-of-gas-explodes-at-the-pump.html the people spontaneously took the streeys to release their anger and protest in violence.

In the middle class neighborhoods, many shop windows and windshield have been broken by stones by angry demonstrators who accused the Head of State of being at the service of the IMF and not of the Haitian people. Several cars were burned including a vehicle of the National Police of Haiti (PNH)

Throughout the afternoon, there was a lot of tension in the capital, people panicked to find shelter or return home. Port-au-Prince's main thoroughfares were blocked by barricades of inflamed tires, of rock, old vehicle carcasses and tree trunks. Traffic was paralyzed and most businesses closed.

The situation was particularly tense in Pétion-ville, near the residence of President Moïse, but demonstrations were also held at Delmas, Lalue, Nazon, Champs de Mars, Sofa-green, Bon Repos, Leogane Portal, Carrefour Marassa, Kenscoff among others

Witnesses report at least two victims killed by bullets at Turgeau. In addition, a security officer was allegedly lynched by a group of hooded individuals while attempting to force a barricade erected by protesters.

During this day of violence the PNH was rather discreet...

Late in the night, the streets of Port-au-Prince were still blocked and episodic gunfire was heard in several parts of the city.
