Two weeks ago, Haitian president Jovenel Moïse was assassinated at his home. Today, the country holds his funeral.

Kate Michel with Radio 4VH, a Trans World Radio partner in Haiti, says, “The city of Cap-Haitian is where that ceremony and that process will happen. People are preparing there. But there’s also a real sense of grief and shock over what has happened, and a sense of being in limbo as to what this means for Haiti next.”
