Our hearts go out to the Haitian people, our colleagues, friends, and family at the news this morning of the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse and of the attempt on the life of his wife, Martine Moïse, whose condition remains unclear. We watch as this crisis unfolds and hope for stability, peace, and the continuation of hard-gained Haitian democracy.

We are in contact with our colleagues on the ground.
