The request was sent by the government to the US and the UN, but the US says it has no plans to offer military assistance “at this time”.
Haitian police earlier said a group of 28 foreign mercenaries killed the president on Wednesday.
Some of the group, which Haiti says included retired Colombian soldiers, were held at the house they were using, others after entering Taiwan’s diplomatic compound, the police said.
Although the US will not offer troops, it said on Friday it was sending FBI and Department of Homeland Security officials to Haiti to help in the investigation.
The UN Security Council would have to approve any plan to send international troops to Haiti under UN auspices.
