Meanwhile, Bahamian Prime Minister Philip Davis ordered all his diplomatic staff in Haiti to leave the country immediately.

Bahamian authorities indicated this is a temporary measure given recent events that require an assessment and consideration of corporate security and intelligence.

The Spanish embassy also announced its closure as a result of protest movements and called on Spanish citizens not to go out and be extra vigilant during essential travel in Port-au-Prince.
