The source of the problem according to witnesses:

According to audio interviews of Haitians who have escaped the area from a local Hinche Haiti radio station MEN FM here is the story that triggered this Haitian manhunt:

There was an altercation between a Haitian worker and a Dominican official, his boss, over 150 pesos Tuesday, 19 Mar 2014. The Haitian worker pulled out a machete to harm the boss, the Dominican official in return pulled out a gun and shot the Haitian worker 3 times.

They both died from their respective injuries.

Since the burial of Dominican official, Haitians have been in hiding and running their lives.

One Haitian woman called the Haitian radio MEN FM from Las Matas and said she was hiding for her life while her husband in in fact a Dominican.

Thomassique Haiti Mayor Marino Etienne was on the air to confirm the wave of Haitians re-entering Haiti via the Thomassique / Boc Banic border towns

This looks like a rise or an opportunity any opportunity the Dominican Republic is looking for war. First of all the boss should not have been withholding payments, this is probably not the first time it has happened.
