Remaining Kidnapped Christian Aid Ministries Missionaries in Haiti Freed

The remaining twelve abducted missionaries of Ohio-based missionary group, Christian Aid Ministries (CAM), have regained their freedom. Initially, they were 17 of them who were kidnapped since October 16 by a notorious Haitian kidnap gang, 400 Mowozo. Five were released some weeks ago while twelve were still held hostage.

On Thursday, the spokesperson of Haitian police announced the release of the remaining hostages. However, he did not give any information about their release. It will be recalled that the kidnappers had demanded $17m as ransom for all their victims but it has not been revealed whether any ransom was paid or not.

CAM said in a statement, ‘’We glorify God for answered prayer - the remaining 12 hostages are free! Join us in praising God that all 17 of our loved ones are now safe.”

"Thank you for your fervent prayers throughout the past two months. We hope to provide more information as we are able. 'I will sing unto the Lord, for he hath triumphed gloriously' (Exodus 15:1b).’’

Sixteen of the kidnapped persons are U.S. citizens while one is Canadian. No details have been released as to whether any ransom was paid for their freedom.
