The number of people killed in this week’s massacre in Port-au-Prince has reached 19, after four more victims were identified by a human rights group. Meanwhile, the finger pointing began in all directions, with Haiti’s Prime Minister blaming the Fantom 509, a crew reportedly linked to the opposition and the human rights organization accusing a gang allegedly linked to the government.

At least 20 people were shot, only one survived, according to a National Network of the Defense of Human Rights (RNDDH) report. The shootings took place in Delmas 32, Christ-Roi and Avenue N during the late evening hours of June 28 and early June 29.
