The lives of 17 Christian missionaries may be taken if Haitian gang leaders’ demands are not met.
The US and Canadian missionary group was kidnapped on Saturday, among them several children and teens. The US government addressed the situation Tuesday and is coordinating with the Haitian government.
“We have, in the administration, been relentlessly focused on this.”
The captors are demanding $1 million dollars per captive, and threatening to kill hostages if they are not paid.
