Haiti - Security : High-tension in Petit-Goâve
Monday, October 7, early in the morning, armed bandits of Curtis, made a demonstration of force on the National Road #2 at the occasion of the first day of the effective back to school in Petit-Goâve.

Masked and armed with weapons of war, bandits blocked the road, stripping passengers and preventing students from going to class. They also attacked a food warehouse belonging to Haiti Vision, firing in all directions. They also ransomed foreigners, who were aboard a vehicle of the NGO Samaritan's Purse and swept everything away, fortunately no casualties.

Alerted the agents of UDMO intervened in Curtis and Maro and killed during their operation, a young man of 30 who robbed passers-by, two other individuals were injured. A justice of peace of the city went to the scene to prepare the minutes, it was found on the victim a knife and telephone recharge cards...

The situation was very tense in Chabanne where according to reports from Curtis, there were victims in the camp of bandits... We are trying to confirm this information.

If the police had not arrived quickly, the fate of road users would probably have been more critical. After this guerrilla operation, the robbers returned to their camps in the mountains.

We are closely monitoring the developments.
