Haiti’s prime minister appoints new cabinet:


Prime Minister Ariel Henry swore in his new cabinet on Wednesday, more than four months after he assumed leadership of Haiti following the assassinat­ion of President Jovenel Moïse. The appointmen­ts come as Haiti struggles with a rise in violence, kidnapping­s and ongoing fuel shortages blamed on powerful gangs. Henry appointed nine ministers to positions including foreign affairs, economy, justice, education and health. Among them is Jean Victor Jeneus, who will replace Claude Joseph as minister of foreign affairs and worship. Joseph briefly served as acting prime minister after Moïse was killed July 7 at his home.
