Police say they are still searching for the masterminds behind the attack.

His wife Martine was seriously injured and has been flown to Florida for treatment, w. she is said to be in a stable condition.

Police said the hit squad included 15 Colombians and two Haitian-Americans.

Angry civilians had joined in the search for the gunmen, and helped police track down some of them who were hiding in bushes.
