The two slain journalists were Amady John
Wesley, who worked for the Montreal-based radio station Ecoute FM, and local
reporter Wilguens Louissaint, according to a Haitian police official who spoke
on condition of anonymity.
Ecoute FM confirmed Wesley’s death in a
statement, describing the killing as a “criminal and barbaric act.”
A third journalist in the group was able to
escape the attack, the police official said.
Multiple gangs are fighting for control of the
area of Laboule 12, where the killings took place.
