Port-Au-Prince: Haiti suspends controversial fuel price hike that triggered deadly protests, prime minister says.

The president of Haiti’s Chamber of Deputies on Saturday threatened to take control from the country’s government if it does not reverse an unpopular fuel price rise that has triggered deadly protests.

“If there is no response within two hours, the government will be considered as having resigned” and the legislature will take charge, Gary Bodeau, the Chamber president, told AFP.
