Police clashed with hundreds of protesters after they demonstrated against the arrival of US Ambassador to the United Nations Kelly Craft in Port-au-Prince on Wednesday.

Police used live ammunition, rubber bullets and tear gas to disperse the crowds. Footage shows police firing on a man on a motorbike, gunfire can be heard and one man shows injuries allegedly sustained from clashing with the police. At least two have been reportedly injured.

Protesters were attempting to disrupt dialogues between Craft and Haiti's president Jovenel Moise.

Haiti has been crippled by protests since September, over demands for the president to step down over a corruption scandal.
