Port-au-Prince (Haiti): Haitian President Jovenel Moise was assassinated after a group of unidentified people attacked his private residence, the country’s interim prime minister said in a statement on Wednesday.

Moise’s wife, First Lady Martine Moise, is hospitalised, interim Premier Claude Joseph said.

Joseph condemned what he called a hateful, inhumane and barbaric act, adding that Haiti’s National Police and other authorities had the situation in the Caribbean country under control.

The killing late on Tuesday comes amid deepening political and economic stability and a spike in gang violence.
