Today in Haiti
So today the president of Haiti was hospitalized in Miami with a pulmonary embolism — a blood clot in the lung. (AP story.)
While he was away, armed paramilitaries who consider themselves the restored Haitian Army stormed parliament to forestall action against them by the police and/or, according to the Miami Herald, demand the quick ratification of Prime Minister-designate Laurent Lamothe.
Also according to the Herald, people with the president’s condition are often advised not to fly on airplanes until they have been stabilized.
Maybe I’ve been spending too much time writing of late, but all that reads like prologue to me.
