Protesters were seen looting what appears to be a damaged truck as violent protests against Haitian President Jovenel Moise continued in Port-au-Prince on Monday.

People were also seen running amid smoke and and vehicles on fire during the protest.

Moise, who has been dogged by allegations of corruption since taking office in 2017, has failed twice in recent weeks to get his preferred candidate confirmed as prime minister, while growing numbers of protesters have called for his resignation as the cost of living has continued to rise.

The protest comes as Haiti faces fuel shortages following the government's failure to pay some $100 (€90.8 million) to fuel suppliers.

Haiti has been gripped by the fuel crisis since last year's collapse of the PetroCaribe agreement with Venezuela, which allowed Haiti along with other Caribbean countries to purchase subsidised fuel.
