BERLIN (AP) — The assassination of Haiti’s President Jovenel Moïse has drawn shock and condemnation from leaders in Latin America, Europe and elsewhere, along with calls for calm and unity in the troubled Caribbean nation. Moïse was killed in an attack on his private residence early Wednesday, according to Haiti’s interim prime minister. First Lady Martine Moïse was shot in the overnight attack and hospitalized. It wasn’t immediately clear who was behind the assassination in a country that had grown increasingly unstable and disgruntled in recent years. The Colombian, British and Spanish leaders were among those who condemned the killing, which the White House described as “horrific” and “tragic.”
