Assassination attempt

Haiti PM Ariel Henry survived assassination attempt - officials

The incident happened as Mr Henry took part in the ceremony at a church in the northern city of Gonaïves.

Video posted online showed the prime minister and his entourage scrambling toward their cars amid intense gunfire.

The security situation has deteriorated significantly since the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse last July.

Mr Henry has pledged to crack down on powerful gangs that are blamed for a wave of kidnappings and for seizing control of much of the gas distribution around the country, causing severe fuel shortages.

"It's scary -- I mean, all the coverage is usually about our protesters wreaking havoc and making people feel afraid, and it certainly goes both ways," Conway said Sunday during the at-times contentious interview with CNN's Jake Tapper on "State of the Union."

"I'm glad nobody was hurt, but it does remind you that in these closing days -- especially as the polls tighten -- many of us are getting more death threats, getting more angry messages on social media and elsewhere, and it's a pretty fraught environment there," she said.
