The embattled Prime Minister of Haiti, Ariel Henry, has resigned after weeks of mounting chaos in the Caribbean nation, where gangs have been attacking government structures and social order is on the brink of collapse.

Henry said in a speech at a meeting of Caribbean nations, that his government would leave power after the establishment of a transitional council, adding, Haiti needs peace and stability.

The chairman of the Caricom group and Guyana President Irfaan Ali, acknowledged henry’s resignation, noting that council has been mandated to appoint an interim Prime Minister

Haiti’s government declared a state of emergency on Sunday after armed groups attacked the country’s largest prison in Port-au-Prince, killing and injuring police and prison staff and allowing some 3,500 inmates to escape.
