In his intervention, Pradel Henriquez, the Minister of Communication declared “[…] we recall that there is a state of siege which was set up this morning […] it is a measure that the Government took on a situation of great danger […] today we have men with large weapons who have landed on a territory which is not theirs, they are not Haitian, it is true that there were Haitians with them […] it is foreigners who speak English and Spanish who entered the house of an elected President, and he had done nothing to deserve this fate […]” Henriquez stressed that the current police operation could last all night until the attackers are routed. – Source.
