The protests have escalated throughout the year since Haiti’s supply of subsidised fuel from Venezuela was cut.
Days of protests over petrol shortage have brought parts of Haiti to a standstill. Roads have been blocked and some schools, banks and government offices have been shut.
President Jovenel Moise is facing renewed calls to resign, with protesters blaming him for the fuel shortage, as well as for rising living costs and widespread corruption.
