The day before, this city was the scene of protests in which supporters of the late President blocked streets and clashed with police. While disturbances were not massive or widespread, citizens still staging sporadic protests in the area.
Since Moise's family said they wanted to stay alone during the burial of President Moise, the Prime Minister Ariel Henry, his cabinet, and diplomatic delegations left the wake gradually shortly after noon.
In areas outside the site, citizens protested while the funeral was taking place. TeleSUR correspondent in Haiti Madelein Garcia reported bullets were fired into the air and tear gas was thrown. Police apparently used these resources to clear the way for delegations of officials and diplomats as they left the funeral site.
