Haiti’s surge in gang violence affecting fuel deliveries. Lives could be lost, UN says

Haiti is in the midst of an acute fuel crisis linked to surging insecurity: fuel deliveries have been interrupted for over two weeks by gang blockades and abductions of fuel truck drivers. Drivers responded with a strike last week, protesting insecurity, and angry motorcyclists locked down the capital with fiery barricades. The fuels are widely used to run generators needed to compensate for the country’s unreliable electrical system. (Associated Press,  Miami Herald)
