In Haiti, at least 23 people were arrested after President Jovenel Moïse claimed they were plotting a coup against his government. Protests against Moïse’s U.S.-backed regime have been ongoing for months, as fears mount of a worsening political and economic crisis in the country if Moïse refuses to step down. Opponents of his government say his presidential term ended Sunday. But Moïse has already said he won’t step down, arguing his term doesn’t end until next year.
