Haitian president's assassins claimed to be from US Drug Enforcement Administration

Gunmen who assassinated Haitian President Jovenel Moïse at his home were mercenaries, government says.

The gunmen who assassinated Haitian President Jovenel Moïse at his home claimed to be agents of the US Drug Enforcement Administration, the Miami Herald reported.

Video from the incident depicts someone with an American accent yelling over a loudspeaker: “DEA operation! Everybody stand down! DEA operation! Everybody back up, stand down!”

The Haitian government stated that the assassins were not affiliated with DEA, with one official telling the Herald that they were "mercenaries."


White House press secretary Jen Psaki told MSNBC that the US was monitoring the situation following the “horrific attack, this tragic attack.”


“We will be helpful in any way to the people of Haiti, to the government of Haiti, if there’s an investigation, but we’re still assessing right now, we’re still gathering information. The president, of course, will be briefed by his national security team this morning,” she added.


The US embassy in Port-au-Prince has been closed in response to the ongoing security situation.


Interim prime minister Claude Joseph is currently in charge of the nation of 11-million people, with an unclear line of succession.


Moïse's wife, First Lady Martine Moïse was also shot and wounded in the assassination and is currently being treated at the hospital. https://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/309436

And this is why...


Haiti is the only country in Western Hemisphere without Covid-19 vaccines, World News & Top Stories - The Straits Times


PORT-AU-PRINCE (BLOOMBERG) - Haiti, the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere, has earned another grim distinction: It is the only one that has not vaccinated a single resident against Covid-19.

One of a handful of nations worldwide still awaiting vaccines, Haiti was among the 92 poor and middle-income countries offered doses under the Covax facility. But the government initially declined AstraZeneca shots, citing side effects and widespread fears in the population.

"Haiti did not reject the offer of vaccines from Covax," Haiti Ministry of Health General Director Dr Laure Adrien said in a telephone interview. "All we asked was that they change the vaccine they were providing us."
