Haitian gang leader vows to 'fight' prime minister, violence surges

2/3/2024 6:23
        Haitian gang leader Jimmy Cherizier, also known as Barbecue, warned on Friday he will keep trying to oust Prime Minister Ariel Henry, and asked families to keep children from going to school to "avoid collateral damages," as violence surges in parts of the capital.
        
        Heavy gunfire and traffic disruptions were seen in some areas of Haiti's capital, the U.S. embassy in Haiti said earlier on social media.
        
        "The battle will last as long as it needs to. We will keep fighting Ariel Henry. To avoid collateral damage, keep the kids at home," the gang leader said at a press conference.
        
        Cherizier is a former police officer who heads an alliance of gangs and disrupted the country when he blocked its biggest oil terminal in 2022.
        
        He has faced sanctions from both the United Nations and the United States Department of Treasury.
        
        Violence has ramped up during Prime Minister Ariel Henry's visit to Kenya this week.
