Haitian police fire rubber bullets at gas price protesters in Port-au-Prince on Thursday. Six student protesters were wounded.
It was the second protest this week in Port-au-Prince to demand lower oil prices, in an impoverished country also struggling with political uncertainty.
Haiti recently announced a 30 US cent price reduction for a gallon of gas (3.8 liters), which sells for just over $4 in the country, but protesters said that was insufficient in light of falling oil prices on the international market.
Members of political organizations and students rallied at several university campuses.
In downtown Port-au-Prince, protesters threw stones at police who approached the law faculty located just meters from the presidential palace. Source: France 24
