The assassins Wednesday of Haiti's president were "professional" mercenaries who disguised themselves as US agents and may have already left the country, Haiti's ambassador to the United States said.

"It was a well-orchestrated attack and those were professionals," Ambassador Bocchit Edmond told reporters. "We have a video and we believe that those are mercenaries."
