The U.S. President, Joe Biden, has condemned the “heinous” assassination of Haitian President, Jovenel Moise and offered Washington’s support to the crisis-torn Caribbean island.

“We are shocked and saddened to hear of the horrific assassination of President Jovenel Moise and the attack on First Lady Martine Moise of Haiti,’’ a Biden statement read.

“We condemn this heinous act, and I am sending my sincere wishes for First Lady Moise’s recovery.

“The United States offers condolences to the people of Haiti, and we stand ready to assist as we continue to work for a safe and secure Haiti.’’

A short while later, in an exchange with reporters, Biden said: “We need a lot more information but it is very worrisome about the state of Haiti.’’
