Bandits set on fire several houses in Bel Air, Port-au-Prince and fired gunshots into the air on Sunday. It’s the latest incident in a string of such violence over the past several months.

No deaths or injuries were reported. But more residents had to flee the neighborhood. 

Residents accused members of G9 Family and Allies and their leader Jimmy ‘Barbecue’’Cherisier. He had already denied the accusation. 

Bandits had burned Bel Air at least twice since Aug. 31, killing at least 20 people and leaving scores of families homeless. A large number of them now lives at Champ de Mars park. Source
