Security forces have six men in custody for suspected involvement in the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse and the wounding of first lady Martine Moïse, Haiti's Police Chief Leon Charles said.
Haitian authorities have apprehended those who perpetrated the attack on the president and his wife and are now looking for the masterminds behind it, Charles said during a news conference today.
Haiti’s Acting Prime Minister Claude Joseph asked citizens who are helping to look for those involved in the attack to hand suspects over to police, not kill them. He said the president’s wife and children expect justice.
The chief of police called on the local population to help security forces and not cause unrest.
