Mob in Dominican Republic lynches Haitian father

— Police in the Dominican Republic say a Haitian man has died after being attacked by a mob for allegedly stabbing his 4-month-old daughter.

A police statement says the incident happened in a village north of Santo Domingo late Saturday. It says Jean Lounis got into an argument with the infant's mother, Patricia Philomar, and attacked her.

When the mother ran away to call police, Lounis allegedly stabbed his daughter and carried her outside by one leg. The statement says neighbors then beat Lounis and stabbed him in the neck.

Police say Lounis died Sunday morning. The toddler is in intensive care following surgery.

Haiti and the Dominican Republic share the Caribbean island of Hispaniola and relations between the two neighbors have been fraught with acrimony for decades.
