UN Security Council Demands Halt To Flow Of Guns To Haitian Gangs

Gang violence is skyrocketing across Haiti’s capital, with dozens of people killed in Port-au-Prince in past week.

The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has threatened to impose targeted sanctions against criminal gangs and human rights abusers in Haiti, as it unanimously passed a resolution on Friday that extended a UN mission to the Caribbean nation for another year.

While China voted in favor of the resolution, which extended the so-called BINUH mission until July 15, 2023, and called on countries to stop a flow of guns to Haiti, it expressed disappointment that the council had not imposed a formal arms embargo on Haitian gangs.
