At least four security officials who were in charge of protecting President Jovenel Moïse the night he was assassinated were issued travel restrictions on Friday as part of an investigation into the killing, Haitian prosecutor Bed-Ford Claude said per the Washington Post.

Why it matters: Among the restricted security officials is Dimitri Hérard, chief of security at Haiti's presidential palace, who was arrested Thursday.

Catch up quick: So far, over 20 people have been arrested and local law enforcement has conducted more than 25 interviews as part of its investigation, the head of Haiti’s national police force said at a news conference Friday, per the Post.

Sending U.S. troops to Haiti following the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse is "not on the agenda at this moment" but Marines will be sent to bolster security at the U.S. Embassy in the country, President Biden said at a news conference Thursday.

Why it matters: Haitian authorities requested the Biden administration to send soldiers to help stabilize the country after Moïse was killed by a group of armed men who entered his home last week.

Driving the news: Moïse was killed by a group of armed men who entered his home last week. Members of the presidential guard, as well as bodyguards, have been called in for questioning, per the Times.

The United States' combat mission against the Islamic State in Iraq will be completed "by the end of the year," President Biden said Monday prior to a meeting with Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa al-Kadhimi.

Why it matters: Biden is close to shifting the U.S. military mission in Iraq to a fully advisory role more than 18 years after combat troops were sent to the country under the former President George W. Bush.
