The sound of gunfire interrupted the funeral of the late Haitian President, Jovenel Moïse, who was shot dead two weeks ago.
The US and other delegations left early after shooting rang out as the event got under way.
Protesters blamed some of those at the service for the leader’s death.
The president’s widow Martine, who was injured in the attack and treated in hospital in the US, was at the funeral with three of her children.
Some officials faced the anger of demonstrators, with police chief Leon Charles accused of being an “assassin”.
Haitian police have accused a group made up of 26 Colombians and two Haitian Americans of carrying out the killing.
