The Civil Protection Directorate assured that the internally displaced people, including 69 children and five pregnant women, received food, water and personal hygiene items.

Authorities admitted that due to the wave of violence, hundreds of citizens were sheltered in a church near the southern exit of the Haitian capital.

Since last Tuesday, this area has been the scenario of a feud between two of the main armed gangs in the country to control the territory.

Although images of dead, wounded and people surviving in a public square flooded social networks, the Government had not yet pronounced itself on the climate of terror in the area that connects Port-au-Prince with the southern departments. On Sunday, interim Prime Minister Claude Joseph visited the area along with the Police Director Leon Charles and confirmed that public security restored order in the territory and reopened traffic, which had been paralyzed since early last week.
