Ariel Henry has been targeted by “bandits and terrorists,” according to his office.

Armed men tried to kill Haiti’s Prime Minister, Ariel Henry, during an event last Saturday to celebrate the country’s independence, government sources reported Monday.

The reported incident occurred while Henry was participating in a party in a church in the northern city of Gonaives.

Video images circulated online show the prime minister and his entourage crawling into their cars amid heavy gunfire.

The security situation has deteriorated significantly in Haiti since the assassination of President Jovenel Moise last July.
