Macron vows Caribbean rebuild as anger rises against European powersBy Joseph Guyler Delva PORT-AU-PRINCE (Reuters) – French President Emmanuel Macron vowed to quickly rebuild the islands of the French Caribbean during a visit on Tuesday meant to dispel anger at his government’s response to Hurricane Irma, which killed at least 43 people in the region. The clutch of Caribbean islands hardest hit by the storm were mainly overseas territories belonging to Britain, France and the Netherlands, whose tens of thousands of residents are European Union citizens. The U.S. Virgin Islands were also hard hit.
