In Haiti, thousands have been protesting in the capital Port-au-Prince since Thursday. At least two people were killed, according to local reports, including a 14-year-old boy. Protesters are calling for President Jovenel Moïse to step down over a corruption scandal involving the suspected embezzlement of nearly $4 billion of Petrocaribe funds Haiti received as part of a Venezuelan oil subsidy program. Protesters are also calling out the country’s economic situation.
Protester: “The people can’t take it any longer. We have spoken to the president, but he doesn’t understand. There’s inflation; the price of the dollar is going up. We can’t stay in this situation. We have decided to see it through to the end. There will surely be a revolution in the country.”
