In Haiti, anti-austerity protests are continuing in the capital, Port-au-Prince, after Haiti’s Commerce and Economic ministries announced massive fuel price increases late Friday night as part of austerity measures being imposed on Haiti by the International Monetary Fund. The government quickly canceled the fuel price increases after the massive protests, in which at least two people were killed and luxury foreign hotels were attacked. U.S. airliners have canceled flights to Haiti amid the protests.
