There was a horrific massacre in Haiti, in which armed men dressed with masks and police uniforms went house to house rounding people up, eventually taking twenty one, hacking them to pieces or shooting them to their deaths. As we read in one report from the Independent:
At least 21 people have been murdered in Haiti, after a group of men in uniform opened fire on unarmed residents in an impoverished neighbourhood.
The men arrived in Port-au-Prince, the country’s capital, in a police truck, carrying machetes and guns.
They were accompanied by local gang members and went house to house, gathering up unarmed civilians who they then shot dead or killed with machete blows in alleyways.
“When I saw them I thought they were providing security but then I realized they were shooting at the population,” said Marie-Lourdes Corestan, a local resident. “They were shooting, and I was running to save my life.”
She said that neighbours told her that the men had killed her unarmed 24-year-old son.
Survivors have many theories about the masked killers behind the massacre. Some claimed the group were gang members working with corrupt police officers.
Others speculated that Haitian government officials had orchestrated the killings to prevent anti-corruption protests that often start in the neighborhood, which is an opposition stronghold.
