At least one woman was reportedly killed as protesters clashed with police in Haitian cities on Monday.

Police confronted demonstrators as anti-government protests descended into looting.

Anger has been boiling over as gang violence has spiralled out of control, disrupting shipments of fuel and food.

Haiti’s Prime Minister Ariel Henry has asked for foreign assistance, but the call has been criticised by some Haitians who see it as foreign interference.

In the capital, Port-au-Prince, protesters erected burning barricades out of tyres and threw stones at police, who in turn fired tear gas.

Some protesters proceeded to loot a hotel.
