Kidnappers released two of the 17 missionaries kidnapped in Haiti

Port au Prince (Haiti), Nov 21 (AP) Two of 17 members of a missionary group kidnapped in Haiti more than a month ago are safe and in “good condition” after being freed. His church organization based in America gave this information.

Christian Aid Ministries said in a statement on Sunday that it could not share the names of those released and the reasons for their release and other details. “We are pleased with this release, but we are concerned about the 15 people who are still held hostage,” the Ohio-based group said.

According to a local human rights organisation, 17 missionaries were kidnapped by the ‘400 Mawjo’ gang on October 16. Haiti’s National Police spokesman Gary Desosiers confirmed to the AP the news of the two hostages being released on Sunday. The FBI, which is helping to free the hostages, declined to comment. At the same time, recently the US government has appealed to American citizens to leave Haiti amid the security crisis in Haiti and the acute shortage of fuel.
