US charges four over Haiti President’s assassination

Three Haitian Americans and a Colombian have been charged in the US over the assassination of Haiti’s President Jovenel Moïse last July.

Seven people in total have now been charged in the US.

His death in his private residence in the capital, Port-au-Prince, has plunged the country, already suffering from rising violence and an economic crisis into further turmoil.

Police say a group of mercenaries, most of them Colombians, was behind the attack.

Dozens of people have been arrested in connection with the case, but investigation has been slow and the motives just beginning to emerge.
