Violent protest in Haiti over high gas prices – SPY Ghana

Haitian security forces have attacked hundreds of protesters who were out on the streets of the capital to show their dissatisfaction with high fuel prices.

The demonstrators took to the streets in the capital, Port-au-Prince, on Thursday, urging Haitian President Michel Martelly to step down.

The protesters also called for further cuts to fuel prices despite two recent reductions, including a drop in gas prices from USD 4.75 a gallon to just over USD four. via SPY Ghana
