Haitian gangs attack Port-au-Prince suburbs

Port-au-Prince, Haiti — Armed gangs launched new attacks in the suburbs of Port-au-Prince on Wednesdayand the sound of gunshots could be heard in previously peaceful communities around the Haitian capital.

Associated Press journalists saw at least five bodies in the suburbs and its surroundings, while gangs blocked access to some areas.

Residents of the attacked communities called radio stations to request the presence of Haiti’s national police, which remain understaffed and outnumbered by gangs. Among the affected communities are Petion-Ville, Meyotte, Diègue and Metivier.

When I got up to go to work, I found that I couldn’t go out because the neighborhood was in the hands of bandits.”said Samuel Orelus. “There were about 30 men with heavy weapons. “If the neighborhood had mobilized, we could have destroyed them, but they were heavily armed and we couldn’t do anything.”
