Haiti: Haitian flag’s birthplace sees fiery anti-shooting protest on anniversary

Demonstrators burned at least three vehicles in Arcahaie, the town near Port-au-Prince where the first Haitian flag was sewn 218 years ago.

The demonstrators were denouncing the deaths of two town residents shot by men dressed in police uniforms, according to Gazette Haiti.

Two of the vehicles set on fire were buses. The other vehicle belongs to a delivery company in Gonaïves. The demonstrators also blocked National Route #1. Source
