Haiti: Haitian Terrorist Group Carjacks Belize Soccer Team

Fantom 509, a gang of masked police officers designated as a terrorist organization, carjacked Belize’s soccer team in Port-au-Prince Monday.

The group held up the visiting team’s bus at gunpoint while it was on its way to a hotel.

Police officers negotiated with the Fantom 509 members to allow Belize’s team bus to continue on its route.

“It was a moment of intense fear,” said Deon McCauley, Belize’s co-captain, in a media note. “I am happy everyone is safe and I commend you guys for being brave.”

Belize is in Haiti to play Les Grenadiers on Thursday. Fantom 509 members took to the streets to demand that Five Seconds gang members release the bodies of five police officers murdered earlier this month, according to TripFoumi Enfo.
