Violent protests have gripped the country of Haiti since February 7.

Demonstrators have been calling for President Jovenel Moise to resign over corruption allegations and soaring inflation. Protesters have clashed with police on the streets, cars have been set ablaze and several people have been killed.

The protests began on the second anniversary of Moise's election. He has so far rejected calls to step down, promising instead "a wide range of measures" for economic relief.
