Security Message for U.S. Citizens: Port-au-Prince (HaA�ti), Shots Fired in Delmas 18, 24 and 33

The Embassy has received reports of shots fired in Delmas 18, Delmas 24 and Delmas 33. All U.S. Citizens are advised to avoid these areas.

Please keep in mind that demonstrations in Haiti, even peaceful ones, can escalate quickly and even turn violent, so the Embassy urges all U.S. citizens to remain vigilant, be aware of their surroundings, and avoid this area as much as possible. Should you find yourself among or near protesters, depart the area immediately.
