For the second time 40 years Haiti is holding its Carnival of Flowers (COF), a three-day celebration. The central events of COF will happen outside Port-au-Prince (PAP).
The reason for COF's displacement from PAP is many hundreds of survivors from 2010's earthquake still remain in tent cities in PAP. But President Martelly is allowing opening-day festivities to occur in PAP so those survivors may enjoy the colorful floats and costumes of the parade. The tent cities are slowly being dismantled.
The Haitian National Police's specialized SWAT unit recently celebrated its 17th anniversary in the presence of Prime Minister Laurent Lamothe who brought with him the commendation of President Martelly. He disclosed in a briefing that, through the efforts of the SWAT team and the wider Haitian Police, safety is improving in the country. The instances of crimes of violence, including kidnappings, have gone down due to the continued patrolling of the streets, preventing criminals from finding locations to operate.
