The assassins of the president were “professional” mercenaries.

ABOUTThe perpetrators of the murder appeared at the residence of the head of state in Port-au-Prince, claiming that they belong to the United States Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), but their behavior did not comply with this statute, according to Ambassador Boccit Edmond. …

“It was a well-planned attack and they were professionals,” the Haitian diplomat told reporters in Washington.

“We have a video and we think it’s about mercenaries,” he added.

Haitian First Lady Martin Mois, injured in the attack, will be flown to Miami for treatment.

“I can tell you that since this morning the necessary steps have been taken to transfer her to a hospital in Miami,” the ambassador said.

According to Edmond, who said they spoke to each other in Spanish, an investigation is ongoing to determine where the killers are, their motives and nationality.

The diplomat believes it possible that the assassins have already left Haiti, probably heading for the Dominican Republic, the Spanish-speaking country with which Haiti shares the island of Hispaniola.

“We do not know if they have already left or are still in the country,” he commented.

“If they are not in Haiti, there is only one way for them to leave, through the land borders, because there are no planes there,” he said.

Edmond also stated that the possible use of a private jet would have been detected by civil aviation, and an exit from the territory across land borders would go unnoticed.

In a video posted on social media, Sanna Marin dances and sings with a group of friends. As a result, opposition party leaders are demanding that the 36-year-old government official undergo a drug test, and argue that such an attitude is not appropriate for a government official.

Suitcases containing the remains of two children sold at auction in New Zealand

Published

on

New Zealand police said the remains of two children were found in suitcases bought at an auction in Auckland, New Zealand’s largest city.

Inspector Tofilau Faamanuia Waaelua said that the bodies of the victims, aged between five and ten years, were probably hidden for several years in two suitcases of the same size.

“The nature of the discovery makes the investigation challenging, especially given the time that has elapsed between death and discovery,” Waaelua said.

The family found the bags after purchasing a trailer full of items sold in bulk from a warehouse, with an official stating that the family in question was unrelated to the death but “understandably distraught at the find.”

Police, who also called Interpol, are searching the trailer for other household items and personal items to identify the victims.

The warehouse and property where the bags were found were thoroughly inspected by a forensic team.

“We are doing our best to identify the victims” in order to bring to justice the perpetrator or perpetrators of the deaths of these children, Waaelua said.

Formally, Svalbard is under the sovereignty of Norway, but thanks to a century-old treaty, many other countries have the right to exploit its natural resources. In particular, Russia, which has been mining in the region for years, often employs Ukrainian workers, mostly from the Donbass.
