KREYOL: Haiti - Oposant Regime Tèt Kale a atake Ministre Touris la, Stephanie Balmir Villedrouin, sou Champs-de-Mars... Madanm la ak tout sekirite li yo oblije al pran refuge nan yon restaurant tou pre a... Se CIMO ki kouri pote l sekou... Kisa ou panse de sa???

The newspaper reports these activists, about 20 of them, were waiting for president Michel Martelly to show up at the inauguration of the Place des Artistes in Champ de Mars, downtown Port-au-Prince.

Ministre Stephanie Balmir Villedrouin had to run and take refuge in nearby restaurant because her security agents were overwhelmed by the growing crowd. She was evacuated with the help of CIMO agents who came to her rescue...

I am an American and not into Haitian politics at all. It is because of the major improvement of security, which makes Haiti statically the safest Caribbean nation to visit.

This was accomplished by arresting the kidnapping criminal organisations.

The building up of the Police and SWAT forces by the Haitian government, very good job. There are only 7 crimes per 100,00, which other Island nations are 2 to 3 times worst.

Haiti is a strange country, the only country where good is seen as evil.

For people to attack Mrs. Stephanie Villedrouin is so wrong.

I don't care what side you are on you need to appreciate progress and the person who contributed to make it happen.

I know these attackers were mercenaries, but I am expecting a little more than that even from the sores losers
