Haiti - FLASH : Joe Biden sends a large number of «specialists» to release the American hostages in Haiti
Tuesday, October 26, 2021, the US National Security Advisor, Jake Sullivan said regarding the situation of the 16 American hostages kidnapped on October 16 by a gang in Haiti "I personally give an update on this issue every single day to the president, who is taking a deep interest in making sure we get every single one of those people home safely

Let us recall that armed men of the Gang "400 mawozo" had hijacked on Saturday October 16, 2021, on the road to Ganthier a bus transporting a group of American missionaries and their family members of "Christian Aid Ministries" based in Ohio (5 men, 7 women and 4 children aged 3, 6.14 and 15 as well as an 8 month old baby) and a Canadian citizen https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-35012-haiti-flash-at-least-fifteen-american-missionaries-kidnapped-in-port-au-prince.html . The Gang demanded a ransom of $ 17 million ($ 1 million per hostage) in order to free them https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-35037-haiti-flash-the-gang-400-mawozo-demands-one-million-dollars-for-the-release-of-each-american-hostage.html

After sending three FBI agents to Haiti on October 17 https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-35028-haiti-news-zapping.html , the United States sent the past weekend "[...] a significant number of law enforcement specialists and hostage recovery specialists to work closely with the ministry, the families and the Haitian government to try to coordinate and organize a recovery" said Sullivan adding "We are looking at every possible option for how to go about doing that [...] I will be sensitive to what obviously is a delicate situation, not say more here, other than we have put the assets and resources in place that we believe can help bring this to a successful conclusion," adding" the United States must handle as carefully as possible so at the end of the day we achieve our objective, which is the safe return of every single one of those both adult and children."

Let's recall that the past week concerning the ransom of 17 million dollars demanded by the gang "400 mawozo" the press secretary of the White House, Jen Psaki, had recalled "It remains our policy that the U.S. doesn't negotiate with terrorists." https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-35053-haiti-news-zapping.html
