A wooden boat carrying hundreds of Haitian migrants capsized in shallow water off the coast of the US state of Florida, with Border Patrol officials saying human smuggling is suspected and an investigation is ongoing. Al Jazeera reports that approximately 300 migrants were aboard the boat, and many were in need of medical attention. The development comes amid worsening political and economic conditions in Haiti in the aftermath of the assassination of President Jovenel Moise last July, with armed gangs having expanded their grip on the country, causing a spike in violence and insecurity.
