World’s most dangerous city littered with bodies ‘eaten by pigs’…

THE streets of Haiti’s capital, now the world’s most dangerous city, are strewn with human bodies reportedly being eaten by animals.

Wild pigs and dogs are attacking people’s loved ones because the area is too dangerous for their families to enter, retrieve the bodies and give them proper burials.

A horrific gang war has been raging in the capital, Port-au-Prince, for months with more than 2,500 people killed so far.

Now victims are being left to decay on the roads with some never seen again and others falling victim to the island’s animals, the LA Times reports.

One thug army, led by warlord “Barbecue”, has taken over the ravaged city in what could be the beginnings of a bloody coup.

Jimmy “Barbecue” Chérizier, leader of Haiti‘s most powerful gang alliance, has been ordering his cronies to “burn every house you find”.

Officials believe 80 per cent of the city is now controlled by some six different violent gangs.

The UN is sending out a special police unit from Kenya to help quell the destruction and chaos on the Caribbean island.

Today a US politician, Republican Ben Baker, announced that his daughter and son-in-law had been killed in the ravaged city.

He said his daughter Natalie and her partner Davy were working as full-time missionaries.

The heartbroken dad posted a statement online that read: “Most of you know my daughter and son-in-law Davy and Natalie Lloyd are full time missionaries in Haiti.

“They were attacked by gangs this evening and were both killed. They went to Heaven together.

“Please pray for my family we desperately need strength. And please pray for the Lloyd family as well. I have no other words for now.”

They were murdered in the north of Port-au-Prince, alongside another unnamed person.

The young couple were working with Missions for Haiti, who posted about their deaths online.

The charity said they were ambushed while leaving a church by three trucks of gang members.

It said Davy was taken to a house where he was tied up and beaten.

The couple were reportedly shot dead at around 9pm on Thursday.

While it wasn’t clear which gang was responsible for their violent deaths, two particular leaders control territory in the area.

One, called Chyen Mechan – meaning dog in Haitian Creole – has control over the area where the shooting occurred.

His real name is Claudy Clestin, and he is a dismissed civil servant from the Haiti government.

The leader of another gang known as General Jeff also controls territory close to where the couple was killed.

Both gangs are also part of a coalition known as Viv Ansanm, which translates as Live Together.

What is happening in Haiti?

By Iona Cleave, Foreign News Reporter

HAITI has been under a state of emergency since March 4 after heavily armed gangs have laid siege to the capital in a bid to overthrow the government.

Bodies are piling up on the streets of Port-au-Prince which is engulfed in an all-out civil war between more than 200 merciless gangs, a weak police force and recently citizen-led death squads.

Amid the lawless carnage, there are widespread reports of murder, rape, arson and kidnappings as the once warring gangs have loosely unified to lead coordinated attacks.

In early March, Jimmy “Barbecue” Chérizier, the leader of Haiti’s most powerful gang alliance, G9, declared the nation’s ruthless gangs unite to oust interim PM Ariel Henry.

Barbecue – who is famed for burning his victim’s alive – has helped lead attacks on the main airport, the country’s two largest jails, fuel depots and police stations, paralysing the country.

PM Henry has remained stranded abroad and agreed to stand down on March 11. But the violence did not subside.

Instead, the gangs have sought to exploit the chaos to take more territory – with reports stating they now control over 90 per cent of Port-au-Prince.

Gun battles rage on streets, residents have barricaded themselves in their homes and half of Haiti’s population is struggling to feed themselves.

The newest wave of violence to hit the disaster-struck country has killed thousands and displaced hundreds of thousands.

According to the UN, the small Caribbean nation is now at breaking point.
