    Haiti's prime minister is facing increasing calls to step down, after days of violent demonstrations sparked by plans to raise fuel prices.

    There were peaceful protests across the country on Wednesday - and more are expected later this week in the run-up to a vote of confidence in the national assembly.

    Al Jazeera's Gabriel Elizondo reports from Port-au-Prince.
