Updated: Jul 8, 2021

What Happened:

  • On Wednesday, Haiti’s interim Prime Minister announced that Haitian President Jovenel Moïse was assassinated during an overnight attack at his home.

  • First Lady Martine Moïse was also hurt during the attack and is currently hospitalized.

  • With a suffering economy and runaway inflation, many Haitians were displeased with Moïse’s leadership.

  • Moïse had been ruling as a provisional president for over two years after the country failed to hold presidential elections.

  • Opposition leaders have been calling for Moïse to step down saying his term ended earlier this year. Elections are scheduled to be held later this year.
