Chaos at Carnival: Bandit Attack Leaves Revelers Injured
During the second day of Carnival festivities, a scene of terror erupted at Champ de Mars, leaving several revelers injured following a brutal attack by bandits. The incident sparked panic among the celebrations, prompting everyone present to flee the area hastily.
Despite the police presence, the bandits managed to evade law enforcement, leaving the scene without being apprehended. This impunity fosters a sense of vulnerability and insecurity among the populace, already strained by a persistent crisis.
This tragic event highlights the security challenges facing the country, as the de facto government has allocated a considerable sum of over 190 million gourdes for this year’s carnival organization.
