Haitians have gone to the polls for the second time in three months after violence and allegations of fraud turned August elections into a shambles. This time, the vote went ahead peacefully.
At least 12 people were reported killed over the weekend in Haiti’s capital in violence blamed on rival gangs battling for control over voting centers ahead of Sunday’s election.
Haiti is currently operating without a functioning government, and a legislative election held on August 9 was marred by a low turnout and officials being threatened at gunpoint.
Shoddy construction practices and faulty sewage systems at one USAID housing development in Haiti are currently the subject of an ongoing investigation.
