Haiti mob kills two suspects in CU robbery
PORT AU PRINCE, Haiti (7/9/08)--A Haitian mob killed two journalists in what was believed to be retaliation for robbing a local credit union, the United Nations said Sunday. A member of the mob also died (British Broadcasting Corp. and Caribbean Media Corp. July 8). Georges Honourat, assistant secretary-general of the leftist National Popular Party, identified the two men as Prad Jean Vernet and Adrien Michel, journalists with a newspaper run by a small Haiti Progress Party. They were campaigning for a seat in the Haitian Senate, he said. A UN police spokesman said the mob suspected the men of helping steal more than US$1,800 from the credit union, near the northern port of Cap-Haitien. The credit union was not identified in the report.
