The wife of Haiti’s president, Martine Marie Etienne Joseph, better known as Martine Moïse, also died after being wounded in the attack on her residence where Jovenel Moise was also killed,

A group of armed persons entered the presidential residence where the president of Haiti, Jovenel Moise, lived and shot him.

This was officially confirmed by the Prime Minister of the small Caribbean island, Claude Joseph.

The event took place this Wednesday at dawn in the Pelerin neighborhood of Port-au-Prince by a commando made up of foreigners, said Joseph.

Haitian President Jovenel Moïse was killed in an attack on his home in the country’s capital, according to the interim prime minister.

Claude Joseph said the president’s home in Port-au-Prince was stormed by unidentified gunmen at 01:00 local time (05:00 GMT).

First lady Martine Moïse was wounded in the attack but hours later was pronounced dead.

Jovenel Moïse, 53, had been in power since February 2017. There were widespread demonstrations in the capital and other cities earlier this year as people demanded his resignation.

His time in office was difficult as he faced corruption allegations and was challenged by waves of often violent anti-government protests.
