"We condemn these acts of vandalism and looting against an educational institution, more than a hundred years old in the country and at the service of the population," said a statement from the university.

The bandits smashed windows, televisions, solar panels and loaded equipment from several laboratories intended for teaching and research.

"The Rectorate considers it important to remember that, regardless of the constant crises that the Haitian nation is going through, we must always think of its future. Whatever the context, it is inconceivable to proceed with the destruction of the country's institutions and physical heritage," the note states.

The tweet reads, "The Faculty of Sciences of the Université d'État d'Haïti was vandalized on the evening of March 9-10. The UEH rectorate denounces and condemns "these acts of vandalism and looting against an educational institution that is more than a century old, at the service of the population."

On the contrary, the text continues, they must be safeguarded in order to guarantee the continuity of services to Haitian compatriots.
