اغتيال رئيس هايتي في منزله

By Jordi Bou

July 7, 2021 - قال رئيس الوزراء هايتي الموقت كلود جوزيف إن الرئيس جوفينيل مويس قُتل بالرصاص في هجوم على منزله الخاص.

Interim Prime Minister said the president’s residence in Port-au-Prince was stormed by unidentified armed men at 01:00 local time (05:00 GMT), the BBC reports.

The killing comes amid deepening political and economic stability and a spike in gang violence.

According to Reuters, the bloodshed is driven by worsening poverty and political instability. Moïse faced fierce protests after taking office as president in 2017, with the opposition accusing him this year of seeking to install a dictatorship by overstaying his mandate and becoming more authoritarian – charges he denied.
