About 70 dead in Haiti gang clashes

Port-au-Prince, Mar 13 (Prensa Latina) Some 70 people have been killed during recent gang clashes in Port-au-Prince, the National Network for the Defense of Human Rights condemned and criticized present violence that currently impacts on Haiti.

Pregnant women, children, and elderly citizens are among victims of the armed conflicts among gangs led by Kempes Sanon and Krache Dife on February 28. The latter is allegedly founded by Fednel Monchery, former general director of the Interior Ministry.

Krache Dife intended to reconquer Bel Air, a neighborhood in the nearby area of the National Palace, planning an armed attack on the region that Kempes Sanon quickly responded with the support of the Izo and Ti Lapli gangs, the National Network Executive Director Pierre Esperánce stated.

Gangs that extort, kidnap and murder ordinary citizens, state officials, merchants, and many others currently control more than half of Port-au-Prince.
