Unidentified people attacked President Moise’s private residence overnight and shot him, the interim prime minister said.
Haitian President Jovenel Moise has been assassinated in his home, said interim Prime Minister Claude Joseph.
A group of unidentified individuals attacked Moise’s private resident during the night Wednesday and shot him, Joseph said.
The first lady was hospitalized in the attack.
Moise had ruled Haiti, America’s poorest country, by decree after the legislative elections scheduled for 2018 were delayed and after disputes over the end of his own term.
Joseph said he was now in charge of the village.
