Canadian government issues travel advisory for Haiti
Canadians are being told to avoid all non-essential travel to Haiti as violent protests sweep the Caribbean nation.
A travel advisory has been issued with officials tweeting out, "Protesters have set up burning barricades in the main streets of Port-au-Prince as well as in residential neighbourhoods. Limit your movements."
The protests are in reaction to a fuel price hike from the Haitian government - by Saturday government officials suspended the hike as protesters took to the streets.
The planned hike would have increased the price of gasoline 38%, diesel 47%, and kerosene 51% according to a Haitian newspaper, Le Nouvelliste.
There are reports of demonstrators attacking hotels in Port-au-Prince.
