    Anger at a botched attempt to raise fuel prices in Haiti is now leading to a no-confidence vote against the prime minister.

    Calm has been restored to the streets, but there are fears of more violence if Jack Guy Lafontant refuses to step down.

    A spokeswoman for the president told Al Jazeera he is ready to take action to relieve the crisis.

    Gabriel Elizondo reports from Port-au-Prince.
