UN: Armed groups continue coordinating attacks on civilians in Haiti

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs warns that people in some neighbourhoods of Haiti's capital, Port-au-Prince are extremely vulnerable, with armed groups continuing to perpetrate coordinated attacks.
 
Last Friday, the commune of Gressier, south of Port-au-Prince, was attacked and several houses were set on fire.
 
According to local authorities, an unknown number of residents were forced to flee.
 
Since late February, coordinated attacks by armed groups have targeted hospitals, schools, homes, churches, banks and commercial establishments.
 
There are currently 362,000 internally displaced people.
