HAITI: PHOTOJOURNALIST SHOT IN FACE AS SENATOR OPENS FIRE OUTSIDE PARLIAMENT

Two men including a photojournalist have been shot and injured by a Haitian senator who opened fire outside the country’s parliament, amid chaotic scenes as the government attempted to confirm the appointment of a new prime minister.

Chery Dieu-Nalio, an Associated Press photographer, was wounded in the face and a second man, Leon Leblanc, a security guard and driver, was also injured in the incident in the country’s capital, Port-au-Prince, on Monday.

Although doctors were reported to be removing bullet fragments from Dieu-Nalio’s face, the injuries are said not to be life-threatening.

Before leaving the scene, Leblanc told reporters he had seen Jean Marie Ralph Féthière, a senator from the north of the country, draw a handgun as he tried to leave the parliamentary precincts through a crowd of protesters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

One has to wonder what the motivation here could have been, but after all, it is Haiti, where the US has laundered money, and drunk deep of the country's corruption and US-engendered servitude.
