Two people among a group of 17 US and Canadian missionaries kidnapped by an armed gang in Haiti last month have been released, aid officials say.
Christian Aid Ministries said yesterday that the two individuals were “safe, in good spirits, and being cared for”.
The abduction of the missionaries and their family members, including children whose identities have been kept silent, was reported on 16 October.
They were returning from a visit to an orphanage when the bus they were travelling in was seized by gang members on a main road in the town of Ganthier, east of the capital, Port-au-Prince.
All of those abducted at the time – five men, seven women and five children – are US citizens, except one who is a Canadian national. END
