Haiti PM fires prosecutor seeking charges against him

Haitian Prime Minister Ariel Henry on Tuesday fired a prosecutor who had brought charges against him.
The charges link Henry to the murder of President Jovenel Moise, who was shot in July.
Attorney General Bed-Ford Claude said last week that phone records showed Henry had communicated twice with a man believed to be the mastermind behind Moise's murder that night.
This suspect - a former Justice Department official - is now on the run. And Henry defended him.
The prosecutor wrote Tuesday to the judge overseeing the investigation into Moise's murder asking him to indict Henry as a suspect.
Later that day, a letter emerged from Henry dismissing the prosecutor for a "serious administrative error" with no further details.
It remains unclear whether this order is valid.
Henry, a neurosurgeon and moderate, was named Prime Minister by Moise a few days before he was assassinated - to ease political tension.
Henry tried to forge a new consensus between different political groups.
Haiti has experienced decades of political instability and natural disasters and is America's poorest economy.
Moise's death created deeper political turmoil - and questions about Henry's possible involvement could overshadow any consensus after the assassination.
