According to charity authorities, two of the 17 US and Canadian missionaries captured by armed criminals in Haiti last month have been liberated. The two people were “safe, in excellent spirits, and being cared for,” Christian Aid Ministries said on Sunday. On October 16, the missionaries and their families, including kids, were kidnapped.
They were on their way back from a trip to a shelter when their bus was stopped by gang members on a prominent road in Ganthier, a town east of the capital, Port-au-Prince. Except for one Canadian national, all of those kidnapped at the time – five men, seven women, and five children – are US citizens.
