LATE BREAKING NEWS: Wyclef Jean Shot In Haiti.

Shot: Rapper Wyclef Jean canvassing for support in August last year in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. The singer was disqualified for running for president but is supporting fellow musician Michel Martelly


Wyclef Jean has been shot in the hand in his native Haiti on the eve of presidential elections on the Caribbean island. The singer has been released from hospital after the shooting just after 11pm local time on Saturday in the city of Delmas, just outside the capital Port-au-Prince, the star’s spokesman said. Details of the shooting remain unclear, but Jean, who lives in the US, is a high profile supporter of presidential candidate and fellow musician Michel Martelly.

The American-Haitian singer’s own bid for president ended with an August disqualification. Haiti’s voters are due to go to the ballot box later today to pick a president to lead their country where anger with the government runs deep and nearly a million people are living on the streets.
