Haiti’s gangs have seized nearly total control of the country. They have carried out a prison break of nearly 4,000 people and forced the nation’s acting president Ariel Henry to seek refuge in Puerto Rico. Gang leader Jimmy “Barbecue” Chérizier has called for Henry’s resignation and foresees a role for himself in the country’s political future. On Monday, Henry announced his resignation in favor of a transitional presidential council.
