A funeral for slain Haitian president Jovenel Moïse will be held today, Friday, more than two weeks after he was assassinated.
A priest said at a memorial service Thursday that too much blood is being shed in Haiti as authorities warned of more unrest ahead of his funeral.
Demonstrations after the Mass turned violent Thursday with protesters shooting into the air, throwing rocks and overturning concrete barricades.
Haitian officials have said Moïse was killed on July 7 by a team of foreign “mercenaries” that included up to three Americans of Haitian descent.
Haiti’s police chief, Léon Charles, said 26 suspects have been arrested so far, including three police officers and 18 former Colombian soldiers.
