In a statement, CARICOM stated that the reported death of a citizen during the incident, heightens the Community’s concern at the continued deterioration of the security situation in the country.

CARICOM urges the Haitian authorities to address this prevailing untenable security situation with urgency in order to restore a sense of safety and security to the country.

The event, which included a Te Deum church service at the Gonaives Cathedral, was disrupted by volleys of automatic weapons in the surroundings of the church.

Henry was unable to deliver his public speech at the nearby Place des Armes Square, which normally follows the church service as part of the ceremony.
