TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Students from a law school in Haiti's capital took to the streets to protest the murder of Monferrier Dorval, head of the bar association in Port-au-Prince.
The students accuse the government of what they call complicit silence at the rise in violence.
Protesters were seen setting a vehicle on fire and throwing various projectiles, while the police responded with tear gas.
Monferrier Dorval was shot dead at his home on Friday night. No responsibility was claimed for the killing and no arrests have been made so far.
