6:04 pm
chosen by the former leader michelle martelli to become his successor of the center . right patient had killer party, 2015 election was the 1st to declare him winter, but the boat was overturned after allegations of fraud and violent st. protel. the rerun was then delayed by hurricane matthew, which caused widespread destruction in the south. but when it was finally held in 2018, it sport disagreements about when marie says term would end. after legislative elections were delayed. that year marie stayed on to rule by decree. without a parliament. he tried to reassure haitians, even as things deteriorated around him. views by marcia development need, the more violence does not work with developments and democracy. we have to cut bridges with these old practices that are putting the country behind. despite his calls for calm, the protests against him and his government got worse. he was accused of inaction.
6:05 pm
in the face of increasing violence, a surgeon kidnappings for ransom, and the growth of armed gangs. in march, he declared some forms of protests as acts of terrorism. before his assassination luis announced a new prime minister to tackle criminal violence. would have been his 7th and 4 years now, long after a group of individuals broke into his home in the capital porter prince and shot him dead. janelle maurice was 53 years old as talk now to andy gallagher joins us from miami. first of all, let's start with what you're hearing and the from haiti. how calm is the situation there now? while i'm hearing reports from my contacts and porter printed the streets, there are pretty quiet at the moment. people essentially hunkering down waiting for news, but essentially this political vacuum is extremely dangerous. we know from haiti's past when things like this happened, violence tends to come very quickly,
6:06 pm
despite the fact that the deputy prime minister has declared a state of emergency that doesn't really mean much for the normal people of haiti. we know there's gangs already roaming the streets for the past year or so. this is potentially, you know, something that will cause a slide into violence very quickly. we've certainly seen that in the past and there are no obvious successes right now. there's, you know, movies. no real structures put in place to quickly replace them. and of course the, someone that constitutionally his critics, they should have stepped out of office by now that led to all these delayed elections, accusations of vote, time bring and fraud. so this is potentially a very different difficult situation, a very dangerous situation, but i'm hearing on the street support to friends. it's very quiet for now and way you are the how is the haitian community there in florida, reacting to news of this and be well,
6:07 pm
it's very quiet here in little haiti. at the moment. i've spoken to a couple of people who are you into haitian radio to get news of what's going on, but i think the assassination of europe now my, we says not what's concerning people here. many who have family back in hate. the security situation. that is the biggest concern, because if you have relatives in haiti and puerto prince right now, you know the situation could become inflamed extremely quickly. we ought to see burning ties on protests on the streets and out into the armed gangs, food shortages, and the fact that united nations pull the troops out in 2017. that makes this a very worrying situation for the 300000. so patients that live here in south florida. all right, let's thank and d galico. let's continue this now with our white house correspondent, kimberly how could she live for us in washington dc. as i mentioned, kimberly have been offered to help by the u. s. what exactly is the u. s. offering? well, it's still unclear in terms of the support. it may be additional,
6:08 pm
given the fact that the united states has already been the top donor to haiti for. 2 some 11 years, particularly following the earthquake in the forms of humanitarian assistance, as well as reconstruction efforts. but what we do know is that the u. s. president has just left the white house and he was asked to give his reaction to what has happened in haiti. what he said was that it's worry so much and that the united states is still gathering more information building on the statement by the white house press secretary jen saki a little bit earlier where she called this tragic and horrific crime. and express solidarity with the people of haiti and kimberly will sort of policy turn around towards moiz was already under way since biden took over. yeah, there had been a bit of confusion early on in the biden administration about where exactly the white house stood in terms of its haiti policy once the biden harris administration
6:09 pm
took office. what we do know is that after much pressure, the u. s. president did offer temporary protected status to 100000 haitians that would allow for them to natalie live in the united states legally, but ultimately obtain a pathway to citizenship. but because of pressure for many members of congress as both haitian americans to do even more to clarify the physician, we saw more recently statements from the secretary of state antennae blinking where it was very clear that there had been shifts. imposition by the, by the administration, early on it had been kind of wavering over whether or not it was supporting the new constitution in a referendum on that that had been put forward by the president. but more recently, what we know is that in the midst of changing course, the u. s. position was to push for a presidential election. and so that is where the policies stood. of course,
6:10 pm
now these new developments will certainly add to the dynamic and the complexities of the u. s. haiti relationship. well, i, thanks so much. kimberly how could on diplomatic attitude, james phase is live at the united nations headquarters, new york jones, a fly from the james, one of my saying it the security council on the while the security council, some have been talking about this semi. but 1st, let me tell you about the secretary general, because in the last 15 minutes, he's released a statement. antonia good terrorist saying he condemns assassination. in the strongest terms, the perpetrators of this crime must be brought to justice. he says he goes on. the 2nd general calls on all haitians to preserve the constitutional order remain united in the face of the support act and reject all violence. clearly the security council, as you say, is the body that now needs to discuss this. the busy talk about democratic republic
6:11 pm
of congo at the moment, on the way into the meeting, i spoke to the current president of the security council, france holds the presidency and their bus, the nickel review, told me, i am sure we will discuss this, but let me consult with my colleagues. my understanding at the moment is that those colleagues are thinking about a meeting, some suggestions. it could be in the coming hours, but i'm now hearing more likely it will be on thursday. one of those colleagues is the irish baset and i spoke to her as she arrived at the un. it's really a shocking development. you know, i think you can be sure he is an issue. the counsel already deals with that we will continue to support the people of hey, this is a critical moment. i think we all knew it was sensitive and difficult to arm the grand and ac in view of the political situation and the security situation. this put staff in even greater danger than before. while you remember that the us used
6:12 pm
to have peacekeepers in haiti under pressure from the obama administration, they were withdrawn from ac d u. n, though, does have a small presence. still a small mission in haiti, i've been in touch with them in the last couple of hours that basically locked down . i'm told they're in back to back crisis meetings. nice, thanks, james. thanks so much for that. let's continue this now with today's at bows, she joined us from one desire to so job in our moiz quite a controversial figure. how is the demise being reflected upon across latin america? when in latin america, the new came as a job shock, like just like in the rest of the world, we saw that the president of the dominican republic shut down the borders also calling for urgent meeting with members of the military in his country in order to prepare about what could happen in the hazy in the next few days. we also heard
6:13 pm
from columbia president yvonne, who referred to as barbaric act and also calling for the organization of american states to intervene and what is happening in haiti in order to save guard democracy . we also heard from mexican president and then when we looked at or who sent his condolences to the haitian people from about jumping from chile from argentinians foreign ministry among others. so in general, this is not so shock. lots of concern about what's happening and have to right now you're going to station of american states, released a press release, where they basically saying that they condemned the acts of what happened in haiti . the president of fascination and also say that they will be evaluating the situation in the country later today. this is not something new we have, we have seen, but there is a history of violence in the country. i've also seen lots of flooring intervention the united nations presents there until 2017. you'll get
6:14 pm
a station of americans. faith also has a strong presence in the country, so the region is mostly monitoring what's going to happen next according to have this constitution election should be happening soon at entering president should be in place until the country can call for new elections. and that's the big issue in have right now president, joanna marie has been ruling 4 by degree in the past year and a half. he has failed to call for legislative election. he has been trying to reform the country's constitution. and just this past week, we have seen that they basically announced that presidential election and measures, maybe the actions were going to be happening in september this year. well, the region and the people of haiti also are waiting to know what's going to happen next. perhaps related to that might be the reason why some countries in the region calling for o s intervention, any sign of that coming together well if i
6:15 pm
said before, sammy, we're waiting to hear what the o e s has to say. they announced that they're going to be holding a meeting later today, but there's a lot of urgency to see what is going to be happening in the contra, we're hearing from the interim prime minister closure says he's a former a haitian foreign minister. i few are hearing from my other colleagues, there's lots of tension in the country. nobody really knows what actually happened . there's investigations on going and people trying to understand what actually happened. we know that haiti has been in an enormous crisis for the past year and have massive protest happening in the capital against president george not told me because he was accused of corruption accuse of trying to hold onto power. but also because people in the country are in desperate need in the past year and a half katie has been affected by corona virus, by poverty, race close to 80 percent by gang violence. just the fact we reported on the killing
6:16 pm
of famous journalists in the country of human rights activists. there's been a previous, a fascination at 10. so this is something that the government denounced. earlier this year, a supreme court judge was detained at the time and several other people when president joined in movies in february this year denounced that there's been a fascination attempt on his life. so there's lots of different analysis ongoing about what will happen and will be monitoring what the organization of american states has to say about what's happening in the country right now. good stuff from teresa bo. kimberly mentioned us, president joe bivens reaction here, says a lot more information, but it's very worried about do i have a role in the united states with fine and take action? what what was, what was your briefing today?

6:22 pm
most significant. he is one of a dozen ministers, including education environment and also the i t, the law, electronics, and minister. that's all knowledge because the indian government relationship of social media companies, especially twitter, has never been worse and it's been myatt and legal battles this year. but yes, the health minister, the government faced a lot of criticism, prime minister modi phase to the most criticism for the government's handling of the 2nd wave, also provide a virus where people in india and abroad. so that images every day of people dying because of the lack of hospital beds and oxygen, the images of the math, chrome, nations, and burials, the 100 is not more bodies washing up in the ganges. but what is interesting here is that walla health minister, formal health minister, now hush buds and has resigned from the new summit in the morning, is known for a leadership style where he makes all the decisions he makes all the cold. and so this is being seen, especially by his critics as a prime minister,
