PORT-AU-PRINCE, March 9 ― Heavy gunfire was seen yesterday near Haiti's national palace in its capital of Port-au-Prince, according to reports by news agency EFE, in the midst of political turmoil sparked by Prime Minister Ariel Henry's absence.

Haiti entered a state of emergency last Sunday after fighting escalated, armed gangs broke inmates out of prison, and an estimated over ten thousand people were displaced while Henry was in Kenya seeking a deal for an international force to fight Haiti's gangs.

The United States earlier this week called on Haiti's prime minister to expedite a political transition as armed gangs seek his ouster.
