The National Police of Haiti (PNH) says law enforcement officials have arrested 35 people including five for the murder of four police officers and three for lynching three disabled women last week.

PNH deputy spokesman and the Principal Inspector, Garry Desrosiers, said the 35 individuals arrested are accused of various crimes including: criminal conspiracy, murder, attempted murder, kidnapping and kidnapping simulation and rape.

Last week, the Defense National Network of Human Rights in a report noted that the police officers were killed during the period January 3, 2015 to March 18 this year.

It said that 34 police officers were shot and one died as a result of a knife attack, and added that five inspectors were among those killed while 37 others were also injured during the period.
