Haitian bishop injured in an explosion

Haitian bishop, Bishop Dumas, often spoke out against the violence occurring in the Caribbean country. He has been injured in an explosion, but his condition is stable.

On Sunday, Bishop Pierre-André Dumas of Anse-à-Veau-Miragoâne, vice president of the Haitian Bishops Conference, suffered injuries as a consequence of an explosion. Bishop Dumas was staying in a house during his visit to Port-au-Prince, the nation’s capital. That is where the explosion occurred.

The health of Bishop Dumas is stable,”

says a note from Haiti’s episcopal conference. Initial reconstruction suggests that members of a criminal gang were involved in the explosion.

Bishop Dumas often spoke against the unrest and violence in Haiti caused by the unstable political situation and the fighting between rival gangs. The security situation in the country does not show signs of significant improvement.
