According to the latest information, unidentified persons carried out an attack on the residence of Jovenel Moise. They managed to break into the complex at night. One of the attackers, making his way into the bedroom of the head of Haiti, fired a shot.
The country's government issued a message stating that the injury was fatal.
From the report:
Unknown persons who spoke Spanish committed an inhuman act. This is barbarism. President Moise is assassinated in a private residence in Port-au-Prince. We responsibly declare that the situation in Haiti remains under control.
The statement that everything is "under control", at the same time, raises certain doubts, if only for the reason that unknown persons in the state can easily enter the presidential residence, which should be guarded.
