The Haitian authorities have asked the United States to send American troops to the republic after the assassination of President Jovenel Moiz, Reuters reports, citing the Commissioner for Elections in Haiti, Mathias Pierre.
According to him, such a measure is necessary to protect the key infrastructure of the republic.
Jouvenel Moiz was killed on the night of July 7 as a result of an attack on his private residence. His wife, Martin Moise, was injured. Later, information about her death appeared, but the Haitian embassy in the Dominican Republic denied these reports. Subsequently, the Haitian ambassador to the United States, Bauxite Edmond, said that the first lady of the republic would be transported to Miami for treatment.
According to the latest data, Haitian law enforcement officials have detained 17 Colombians and two Americans of Haitian origin on suspicion of involvement in the assassination of the president.
