Haitians Clash With Police In Protests

Haitians continue their protest by turning out into the streets in large numbers bearing placards, erecting barricades, and looting.

The protest has also claimed the death of several people and witnessed clashes with the police which resulted in the burning of police vehicles.

Residents have been incensed for months at widespread fuel and food shortages, a weakening currency, double-digit inflation, and graft accusations lodged against public officials.

Many are calling for President Jovenel Moise to stand down.

Mr. Moise canceled his speech at the United Nations General Assembly this week and made a rare address to the nation.
