Haitian gang releases 3 more missionaries kidnapped in October
The big picture: Twelve abducted missionaries remain in captivity. Police have said the 400 Mawozo gang in Port-au-Prince is behind the kidnapping.
- The gang has demanded a ransom of $1 million per hostage, per Reuters.
- Two hostages were released last month.
- Haiti has been plagued by worsening violence since the assassination of President Jovenel Moïse in July.
What they're saying: Those "who were released are safe and seem to be in good spirits," Ohio-based Christian Aid Ministries said in a statement Monday.
- "As with the previous release, we are not able to provide the names of the people released, the circumstances of the release, or any other details," it added.
- "We long for all the hostages to be reunited with their loved ones."
