Haitians residents created havoc on the streets of the capital Port-au-Prince on Tuesday, at protests calling for an end to the two-week-long fuel shortages.

People were seen setting tires alight and hurling stones, while some were arrested by police forces. Protesters also assaulted a number of vehicles breaking the windows. Many shops and gas stations were shut off to prevent attacks from the angry protesters.

Residents, who rallied in a spontaneous movement led by the opposition group Pitit Dessalines, were demonstrating against growing insecurity and low living standards.
