The images published on Wednesday show several people walking as they carry the coffins of the dead through the streets of Port au Prince, the capital of Haiti, while some protesters face the police, in addition to barricades and burn tires.

On October 17th, seven people were killed during clashes between protesters and police officers in Port-au-Prince, while Haitian President Jovenel Moise commemorated the 212th anniversary of the death of Emperor Jean-Jacques Dessalines.
