President Jovenel Moise was assassinated on July 7, 2021.

From a team of Colombian security personnel to high-ranking Haitian law enforcement officers, Haitian authorities said they have made more than two dozen arrests in the July 7 assassination of President Jovenel Moïse. 

Authorities have blamed the assassination, which occurred between July 6 and 7 overnight, on a team of 28 mercenaries, including two Haitian-Americans. However, it is not yet clear exactly who fired the fatal gunshots, who ordered the killing or how the president’s security detail might have been involved or not.
