Haiti fuel terminal operations halted as gangs seize trucks

23/4/2024 7:15
        Operations at Haiti's main fuel import terminal were suspended on Monday as armed men seized trucks and demanded the port be shut down, according to a source with information on the matter, likely exacerbating existing fuel shortages.
        
        The source said gangs had blocked off several roads leading to Varreux.
        
        "Fuel remains hard to find in Port-au-Prince, on and off," said a spokesperson from the U.N. World Food Programme, warning of long queues at gas stations.
        "We have stock at the moment, and continue to provide fuel to humanitarian partners working in Haiti," the spokesperson said.
        
        Armed gangs from the G9 alliance already blocked the Varreux terminal for nearly a month in October 2021, and again a year later for more than a month, halting most economic activities and prompting the government to call for a foreign intervention.
