And in Haiti, citizens from the United States and Canada are being urged to get out now as the gang situation spirals out of control and armed groups are preventing fuel from leaving the depots. Here is that report from Caribbean Week in review.

“The US and Canadian governments have urged their citizens to return home from Haiti amid that country’s deepening insecurity, political crisis and a severe lack of fuel that has affected hospitals, schools and banks. In urging citizens to “try to get out now” the US State Department said on Nov 10 that widespread fuel shortages may limit essential services in an emergency including access to banks, money transfers, urgent medical care, internet and telecommunications and public and private transportation. The US Embassy was unlikely to be able to assist them with leaving if commercial carriers become unavailable. The Canadian government also issues a similar warning noting that while the airport was still operational it could be affected on short notice. The Haitian government and police are struggling to control gangs that have blocked fuel distribution terminals for several weeks.”
