Haitian first lady rushed to Florida in critical condition after assassination attempt

Haiti made international headlines this week after a gang of armed assassins stormed President Jovenel Moïse’s residence and killed him.

Wounded in the brutal assassination attack was Moïse’s wife, Martine Moïse, who suffered multiple gunshot wounds. According to Miami’s Local 10 News, the Haitian first lady was immediately rushed to a Florida-based hospital for emergency medical treatment. 

Martine Moïse is said to have arrived at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport at around 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday before being transported to Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami.

Hospital officials indicated that the first lady, who arrived in bad shape as a result of the gunshot wounds, is in critical condition, although thankfully, her vitals are stable as of this writing.

“They will be killed or arrested”

The Daily Mail reported that Haitian authorities have identified the attackers as a group of foreign mercenaries who were posing as agents of the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).

Four of the assailants died in a gun battle while another two were taken into custody. Some of the men remain at large, however, Haitian police chief Leon Charles was quoted as saying, “They will be killed or arrested.”

He went on to reveal that at one point during an encounter with the suspects, three law enforcement officers were taken as hostages by the assassination squad, but have since been released.

The Mail posted video footage from Haiti’s capital city of Port-au-Prince that showed a rising plume of black smoke, in which the sound of heavy gunfire can be heard.

Biden condemns the attack

Interim Prime Minister Claude Joseph took over following Moïse’s death, and he has reportedly moved to seal Haiti’s borders while halting all flights out of the country as part of a declared state of emergency.

Joseph characterized the attack as having been carried out by “foreigners who spoke English and Spanish,” with some believed to be from Columbia and Venezuela.

As revealed in an official White House statement, President Joe Biden said that the United States is “shocked and saddened to hear of the horrific assassination of President Jovenel Moïse and the attack on First Lady Martine Moïse of Haiti.”

“We condemn this heinous act, and I am sending my sincere wishes for First Lady Moïse’s recovery,” Biden addeed. “The United States offers condolences to the people of Haiti, and we stand ready to assist as we continue to work for a safe and secure Haiti.”
