A strong wave of panic then reigned at the Guy Malary terminal in Port-au-Prince, with these attacks by armed bandits not far from the area, a source wishing to remain anonymous informed AlterPresse/AlterRadio.

Staff members, travelers had to take shelter, take cover, to avoid being victims of stray bullets.
