Florida doctor arrested in deadly attack on Haitian President Jovenel Moïse
Miami, Florida – According to officials, a doctor who lives in Florida has been arrested in connection to the deadly attack on Haitian President Jovenel Moïse.
Dr. Christian Emmanuel Sanon was one of the masterminds. They said he arrived in Haiti last month on a private jet with “political motives,” police said.
The attackers reportedly were only supposed to arrest Moïse and then install Sanon as president.
According to police, they obtained the information from several suspects they’ve arrested and interrogated.
Officials say the White House has sent a team to Haiti to provide assistance. The delegation includes experts from the National Security Council, the State Department, and the Department of Homeland Security.
They will meet with Haitian government leaders to learn more about their needs and then brief President Joe Biden on their return.
According to a Pentagon spokesman, they are also reviewing a request to send hundreds of U.S. troops to Haiti.
