Pictures of the Year: A Picture and its Story
People run as Haiti's Senator Jean Marie Ralph Fethiere (PHTK) fires a gun in the air, injuring Chery Dieu-Nalio, a photographer for Associated Press, while facing opposition supporters in the parking lot of the Haitian Parliament and Senate, as the government attempted to confirm the appointment of nominated Prime Minister Fritz William Michel, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, September 23, 2019. Reuters Photographer Andres Martinez Casares: "When Senator Jean Marie Ralph Fethiere pulled a pistol and started shooting outside the Haitian parliament to disperse who he described as 'violent militants,' I was prepared. Earlier another senator was seen with a pistol in his hand when confronted by angry opposition protesters as he arrived at the parliament. We decided to go and get our bulletproof vests and helmets. The situation was turning dangerous. When Fethiere shot into the air and at the ground, an Associated Press photographer and a security guard were injured. Fethiere later told a local radio station he was acting in self-defence. This picture captures the moment when protesters and journalists scrambled to get out of the line of fire as Fethiere fired several shots after getting out of his car in the parliament's parking lot in Port-au-Prince. The shooting only lasted two or three seconds. I took my pictures super-fast. This image shows the senator grimacing at the sound of the gun as he fires, while protesters and journalists bump into each other as they flee. The weapon is clearly visible against a clear blue sky. An AP photographer Dieu Nalio Chery was left behind, injured in the jaw. I saw Chery coming towards me, calling to me and pointing to his chin. At first, I could not see anything. Then I saw blood. I got out a bandage from my pouch and stopped the bleeding. A doctor came and checked Chery out and he was taken off for treatment."
