400 Prisoners Escape After Prison Riot in Haiti

On Thursday, February 25, 2021, past noon, there was a strong riot in the Croix-des-Bouquets prison, near the capital of Port-au-Prince.

The prisoners quickly took control of the prison facilities, managing to disarm several gendarmes to make their way behind bars and walls.

The bloody riot / escape resulted in about 25 deaths as a result of the confrontations with the jailers and police in the sector, but with the happy figure of 400 escaped prisoners.

Since then, there have been several roadblocks where they have managed to recapture some prisoners.

Riot and escape against the prison!
