فرار آلاف السجناء في هايتي

By Ninian Carter

March 4, 2024 - أعلنت حالة الطوارئ في هايتي بعد أن قامت العصابات المسلحة، التي تريد إجبار رئيس الوزراء أرييل هنري على الاستقالة، باقتحام سجنين في بورت أو برنس، مما سمح لآلاف السجناء بالفرار.

The government of Haiti has declared a state of emergency after armed gangs stormed two of the country’s largest prisons, killing at least 12 people in the process.

Port-au-Prince’s National Penitentiary held nearly 4,000 inmates at the time of the attack, and the Croix-des-Bouquets Civil Prison housed roughly 1,400.

Gang leaders, which control around 80% of the capital, are trying to force the resignation of Prime Minister Ariel Henry, who has travelled abroad.

Gang violence has plagued Haiti for years.
