Protesters have stoned the Haitian president’s home and closed with police leaving at least one demonstrator dead in the third straight day of protest against economic mismanagement and corruption.

Those against the president have pledged more protest increasing pressure on President Jovenel Moise, who is calling for negotiations with his opposition.

Thousands protested in downtown Port au Prince Saturday where an associated press journalist saw at least one fatally shot by nearby police. Protesters in Petionville blocked the road that leads up to Moise’s house and stoned his property after guards protecting a Noise ally hit a woman’s car and beat her near the president’s house.
