Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Haiti fuel crisis: Drivers plan strike action after kidnappings” – below is their description.
Fuel truck drivers in Haiti are considering further strike action after armed gangs kidnapped several workers this week.
The union insists on their release, but a strike is likely to compound a fuel crisis that has brought much of the country to a standstill.
Some hospitals are left in the dark, and taxi drivers wait days to fill their gas tanks as the crisis deepens in the Caribbean nation.

Al Jazeera’s John Hendren reports from Port-au-Prince, Haiti.

Haiti mapHaiti is a Caribbean country that shares the island of Hispaniola with the Dominican Republic to its east. Though it’s still recovering from a 2010 earthquake, many of Haiti’s landmarks dating to the early 19th century remain intact. These include Citadelle la Ferrière, a mountaintop fortress.
Jean-Jacques Dessalines (later Emperor Jacques I), defeated Napoleon Bonaparte’s forces and declared Haiti’s sovereignty on 1 January 1804.
Haiti became the only state in history established by a successful slave revolt. Apart from Alexandre Pétion, the first President of the Republic, all of Haiti’s first leaders were former slaves.
