Thousands have participated in protests across Haiti this week

Resistance protesters in Haiti have burnt tires and threw stones and urged President Jovenel Moise to step down.

At least four people have been killed and dozens injured for four days after protests in the capital Port-au-Prince and other cities.

Many Haitians accuse Mr Moise and other corrupt officials. Thousands have taken the street this week.

The Uri has forced mayors of several cities to cancel carnival festivals in early March.

Mr. Moise ̵

1; who has been in power since 2017 – has called for negotiations with the opposition to no avail so far.

Opposition groups called for protests following a legal report, alleging that officials and former ministers had misappropriated Venezuela's development loans to Haiti after 2008.

The report also suggested that President Moise had been involved in irregularities.

Haiti is the poorest country in the Caribbean and 60% of the population live on less than $ 2 (£ 1.53) a day.
