Breitbart: Violent protests broke out in Haiti due to rising gas prices. Three people have been been killed because of the protests, including a police officer and an opposition leader. The U.S. Embassy in Haiti warned Americans to shelter in place and to avoid the violent demonstrations going on in the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince.
Excerpt from Breitbart:
Mike Wilson, the founder of My Life Speaks, told WFLA that the groups tried to leave for the airport early Saturday morning to avoid protests. But leaders decided it would be safer to stay at their compound in Neply—a rural area of Haiti away from major roads—due to the multiple roadblocks hampering the groups’ ability to get around.
