Port-au-Prince in flames from burning vehicles, buildings, restaurant fire

In another week of demonstrations, Port-au-Prince residents saw vehicles, tires, and  government buildings set on fire. In these images, a group going by the name Fantom 509, and allegedly made up of Haitian National Police (PNH) officers, took responsibility for the violence. Among the damaged properties, to which firefighters responded, is a restaurant belonging to a newly-named police administrator. The group vowed to continue shooting, looting and burning until an arrested colleague, Jean-Pascal Alexandre, is released from government custody.
