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.
