Martine Moise returns to Haiti after the assassination of her husband Jovenel Moïse

Martine Moise returns to Haiti after the assassination of her husband Jovenel Moïse

The wounded widow of Haiti’s assassinated president returned to the Caribbean nation Saturday for the first time since the July 7 attack that killed her husband.

Wearing a black dress, pearl necklace, earrings and a black face mask, her bandaged arm in a black sling, Jovenel Moïse’s widow, Martine, gingerly made her way down the steps of the jet that landed in Port-au-Prince.

She was greeted by Interim Prime Minister Claude Joseph.

Martine Moïse was also wearing a grim accessory of her new reality: a bulletproof vest.

The 47-year-old was rushed to a Miami hospital to be treated for gunshot wounds in the aftermath of the attack.

Her late husband is expected to be buried July 23, in the Haitian city of Cap-Haitien. Government officials said Friday that his widow would attend.
