Haiti

Americans Charged with Abduction

The American missionairies who tried to take 33 children from Haiti to the Dominican Republic after the country's earthquake were charged with kidnapping on Thursday and could face up to 15 years in prison, says their lawyer Edwin Coq. He added that it could take the judge three months to reach a verdict. The Haitian government has yet to comment, and it appears the U.S. citizens, most of whom are from a Baptist congregation in Idaho, are keeping mum as well.
