Mob attacks po­lice sta­tion

Los Angeles Times - - 9• 25•10 -

Haitian au­thor­i­ties say a mob has burned a ru­ral po­lice sta­tion and killed an of­fi­cer.

Po­lice agent Guil­lotau Hu­bert shot an uniden­ti­fied man who in­sulted him on Thurs­day, of­fi­cials said. He then took the wounded man into cus­tody in the coastal town of Cayes Jacmel.

An­gry neigh­bors at­tacked the sta­tion with ma­chetes and rocks, over­pow­ered two of­fi­cers and tied them to chairs be­fore hack­ing Hu­bert to death and set­ting fire to his body and the sta­tion. Po­lice ar­rested 20 peo­ple in con­nec­tion with the at­tack.
