PORT-AU-PRINCE, HAITI - Anti-graft protesters in Haiti's capital, Port-au-Prince, targeted journalists Monday as they continued marching around town to demand the president's resignation. It remains unclear why the journalists were attacked.
Monday's rampage followed massive nationwide protests Sunday that resulted in two deaths and substantial property damage in some neighborhoods. The protesters were demanding President Jovenel Moise’s resignation over allegations of fraud and mismanagement of government funds. They vow to remain in the streets until their demands are met.
Former VOA Creole affiliate Radio-Tele Guinen's vans parked in front of the station and loaded with equipment were burned and looted. Reporter Matiado Vilme saw an overturned vehicle in the middle of the road where others' windows were broken. Employees of the station, which is seen and heard nationwide, scrambled to put out fires before firemen arrived on the scene.
"We extinguished the fire ourselves," a visibly shaken employee told VOA Creole, "because the firefighters arrived late. The anti-riot police came to help us, too, but it was too late. A lot of our vehicles were already burned."
