October 18, 2019 at 07:00 GMT +00:00 · Published

Protests demanding the resignation of Haiti's president Jovenel Moise continued in the capital Port-au-Prince on Thursday. Footage shows demonstrators marching, security forces as well as injured taken to hospital.

Protesters prevented Moise from holding a usually public celebration to honour one of Haiti's founding fathers. He and other officials held a brief commemoration service instead.

Demonstrations in Haiti began five weeks ago over corruption, rising prices and lack of basic goods. At least 20 people have been killed and more than 200 injured.
