Haiti PM Ariel Henry banned from leaving country over murder inquiry

Haiti’s Prime Minister Ariel Henry has been banned from leaving the country amid an investigation into his alleged involvement in the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse.

A prosecutor is seeking charges against Mr Henry, who has been asked to explain his links with a key suspect in the killing, Joseph Felix Badio. Mr Moïse was killed at home on 7 July. He was shot dead after gunmen stormed his private residence in a suburb of the capital, Port-au-Prince.

The two men had multiple phone calls just hours after the assassination, prosecutors say.
