The assassination of Haitian President Jovenel Moise, who governed for quite four years amid increasing political instability and surging gang violence, has shaken the Caribbean nation and drawn condemnation around the world.

Moise, 53, was killed within the early hours of Wednesday at his private range in the capital, Port-au-Prince, in what Prime Minister Claude Joseph said was “a highly coordinated attack by a highly trained and heavily armed group”.

Joseph said, “Haiti has lost a true statesman. We will make sure that those liable for this heinous act are swiftly delivered to justice.”
