Haitian authorities identify gang behind the kidnapping of 17 missionaries
Authorities in Haiti say that the gang behind most abductions in the Caribbean nation between June and September is also responsible for Saturday's kidnapping of 17 Christian missionaries.
“The group of sixteen U.S citizens and one Canadian citizen includes five men, seven women, and five children,” the Ohio-based Christian Aid Ministries said in a statement Sunday. “Join us in praying for those who are being held hostage, the kidnappers, and the families, friends, and churches of those affected.”
The Christians were abducted from their vehicle as they were traveling to Titanyen after visiting an orphanage in the Croix des Bouquets area, CNN reported.
