Gang accused of setting Haiti courthouse on fire:


Suspected gang members set fire to a courthouse near Haiti’s capital in the latest incident targeting the country’s crumbling judicial system. The fire occurred in a region controlled by the

400 Mawozo gang, blamed in the killing of a police inspector on Sunday in a church in Croix-desBouquet­s and later setting the building on fire. The courthouse fire occurred a month after another gang raided the Court of First Instance in Port-au-prince. The gang retains control of a portion of that courthouse.
