The UN assesses the humanitarian situation in Haiti as critical

The UN agency said through a statement that most of the deaths were registered due to the wave of violence and insecurity that the Caribbean country is going through.

According to the document, the death toll for the month of April was recorded after the murder of at least 846 people in the first three months of 2023, in addition to 393 injured and 395 kidnapped during the period.

The High Commissioner for Human Rights, Volker Türk, denounced that the Caribbean country faces an endless cycle of violence in part due to the violence of gang groups and other criminal organizations.

Faced with this situation, Türk warned that Haiti demands a firm and urgent response in terms of Human Rights.

In the quarterly report, the UN highlights that the violence is not only becoming more extreme and frequent, but it is spreading as criminal gangs try to expand their control.
