Thousands demand ouster of Haiti PM in new protest

Thousands of people in Haiti's capital and other major cities organized new protests on Wednesday to demand safer streets, more affordable goods and the resignation of Prime Minister Ariel Henry. The occasional crack of gunfire mixed with the shouting and clapping of protesters as they marched through streets blocked by rocks, trucks and burning tires. Protesters held signs against poverty while others lamented the lack of jobs.
