U.N Issues report on Haiti Violence


The U.N. is reporting that 1,860 people were reported killed, injured or kidnapped in Haiti from April to June, a 14% increase compared with the first three months of the year.

According to a human rights report released by the U.N. Integrated Office in Haiti, the surge in gang violence remains centered in the capital of Port-au-Prince and surrounding areas.

The report was released Thursday, a day after the U.S. Embassy in Haiti urged U.S. citizens to leave the Caribbean country “as soon as possible” given the ongoing insecurity and infrastructure challenges.
