Haiti's government has suspended a proposal that would have nearly doubled fuel prices after violent protests killed at least two people and left the capital Port-au-Prince at a standstill.
President Jovenel Moise called on protesters to "go home" late on Saturday after the announcement. However, the Reuters news agency, citing local media, reported that the government's decision to back down did not keep residents from taking to the streets, as the anger and extreme poverty in the Caribbean nation remain.
