Wilguens Louis-Saint , John Wesley Amady


Wilguens who worked for the local media Tele Patriote and Tambou Verité and John Wesley who was a correspondent of Canadia station Radio Ecoute FM , were targeted by members of gang in a shooting incident in Laboule, outside Port-au-Prince.  The journalists, who were initially injured in the attack, were subsequently burned alive.

According to media reports, the journalists were in the area to cover the Laboule 12 neighborhood, one of the richest neighborhoods on the outskirts of the Haitian capital, where clashes were taking place between criminal gangs that are fighting for control of the territory, which has the only alternative land route that connects the capital with the southern half of the country.
