About our Haiti Gangs news

Latest news on the Haiti gang war, featuring comprehensive coverage of the ongoing conflict between major criminal alliances in Port-au-Prince, the government's response, and the impact on the Haitian people.

Since 2020, Haiti's capital has been the battleground for a brutal gang war between the G9 alliance, led by ex-police officer Jimmy 'Barbecue' Chérizier, and the rival G-Pep alliance. The conflict has claimed over 3,700 lives, displaced more than 360,000 people, and left the government struggling to maintain control as gangs dominate up to 90% of Port-au-Prince.

In response to the escalating violence, vigilante groups known as 'bwa kale' have emerged to fight the gangs, while the United Nations Security Council has authorised a Kenya-led multinational security support mission. However, the situation continues to deteriorate, with gang attacks on prisons, government institutions, and civilians becoming increasingly frequent and brazen.

The crisis reached a new peak in March 2024 when gang violence spread throughout the capital, aiming to force the resignation of Prime Minister Ariel Henry. Thousands of prisoners were released in attacks on two major prisons, and the government declared a state of emergency and imposed a curfew in an attempt to restore order.
