Four suspects said to be involved in the assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moïse were killed. Two more have been arrested.
Haiti’s National Police late Wednesday said they had killed four of the suspected assailants and arrested two others — and were still engaged in a fierce gun battle that they expected to last through early Thursday.
“We are chasing them so that either in the exchange of fire they will be killed or we will apprehend them,” Police Chief Leon Charles said. “We will continue to hunt them down.”
Haiti’s ambassador to Washington, Bocchit Edmond, said the killers were “professional” mercenaries disguised as US Drug Enforcement Administration agents.
