The motorcade of Haiti President Jovenel Moise was attacked by a group of unidentified people who threw rocks at the president's caravan as he was passing through the northern city of Archaie. There were no reported injuries, and the perpetrators have not yet been identified by the police.
In a strong-worded statement issued Saturday, the office of the President slammed the attackers as " terrorists". The statement said that the incident, which had endangered the President's life was a "serious threat to the public peace and security of the state.”
Since 2015, there have been constant protests over a redistricting decision of former President Michel Martelly, who had hand-picked Moise as his successor.
