One person was shot to death as a new round of anti-government protests rocked Haiti’s capital city of Port-au-Prince. Protesters are calling for President Michel Martelly and Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe to resign.
“We found a body. The victim was in his thirties. We have not yet identified him, but he was not participating in the demonstrations,” police spokesman Garry Derosiers told AFP.
It was unclear who fired the deadly shot.
On Friday, President Michel Martelly said Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe was ready to resign to help end the country’s political impasse amid the widespread protests, but stopped short of saying when this might happen and whether he would leave too.
“I need to feed my kids. I am a single mom. The government does nothing to change our lives,” said a protester who only gave her name as Yolaine. Source: France 24
