Haiti PM to resign as gangs take control over country

In office, but not in power – Haiti’s Prime Minister Ariel Henry hasn’t even been able to enter his own country in recent days.

Marooned in Puerto Rico as gang violence swept across the island nation, Mr Henry has now announced he will resign as soon as a transition council and temporary leader are chosen.

The United States has pledged an additional 100 million dollars to finance a multinational force to quell the violence.
