More than 100 classmates of murdered student Evelyne Sincere took to the streets in Port-au-Prince Thursday to ask for justice.

Sincere, a high school senior, was kidnapped last week. She was dead in a garbage dump Nov. 1.

Students at Jacques Roumain High School, the school Sincere attended, organized the march. Joined by family and hundreds of other supporters along the way, the protesters walked from Fontamara 43 to the Ministry of Justice, where they asked officials to keep working on the case.

The students plan to march again next week, according to Panel Magik. Source
