Armed robbers shot and killed an Italian nun in Haiti last week. She ran a home for poor children in Port-au-Prince.

Gang violence has ravaged Haiti’s capital for months. A representative to the U.N. says gangs have been tightening their control over the metropolitan area and suburbs. Elections to form a new government likely won’t happen this year.

Kate Michel with Radio 4VEH, a partner of Trans World Radio (TWR) says, “It’s really affecting not just the people in Port au Prince, but also supply routes from the capital to other parts of the country. Thankfully, our station is in Cap Haitian, which has been somewhat protected from gang activity. Although that has increased in recent months.”

“Our staff can still get to work and be about the ministry.”
