Hijacking of Dominican bus stokes Haiti turmoil

Santo Domingo.- The hijacking Sunday in Haiti of a bus from the Dominican Republic occurs amid an increase in gang violence in Haiti and shortly after the extradition to the United States on May 3 of Germine Joly, leader of the “400 Mawozo” gang, warned Crisis24, a Canadian-based global company specializing in integrated risk management and security services.

Preliminary reports indicate that the bus was seized in the area known as Croix-des Bouquets, which is controlled by the 400 Mawozo.

In this regard, Crisis24 warns that Croix-des-Bouquets and the northern neighborhoods of Port-au-Prince “continue to see an increase in gang shootings, arson and civil unrest since the end of April” after the extradition of Germine Joly.

More of this is going to happen as long as there is no order in the country. When UN troops were there after earthquake some order existed. There has to be some international loophole to get foreign troops into Haiti under some world organization flag bring order.

Poorly edited article, there is no mention of the kidnapped people and their nationality.
