Dominican consul shot in HAITI
 SANTO DOMINGO – The Dominican consul in Ouanaminthe, Haiti – Rafael Antonio Luna – is in stable condition in a hospital in this capital where he was operated on after being shot in the torso in an incident involving a businessman, police said.

The former lawmaker and head of the governing Dominican Liberation Party, or PLD, was for many years the security chief for former Dominican President Juan Bosch, with whom he founded the party in 1973.

According to authorities, Luna was arguing with the owner of a furniture store just before he was shot.

Police said that they are investigating the circumstances surrounding the shooting.

Luna participated in the civil-military counter-coup that in 1965 demanded Bosch’s return to power after being ousted two years before, a move that led to civil war and the later invasion of the country by thousands of U.S. Marines
