An armed group operating in Laboule 12, is indexed in the disappearance of Amady John Wesley and Louis Saint Wilgens, two Haitian journalists who work for online media (said digital media). The latter were assassinated in Laboule 12 while working on a report on a conflict involving the armed group of Laboule 12 and another led by Christ for a few days. 

 Laboule 12 is the only practicable path for a person who wants to go to the great south of the country. Because of the gang war, the road to Martissant is impassable and it is at the risk of his life that a person dares to take this path.
