Haiti - FLASH : 2 of the 17 kidnapped American hostages released
Two of the 17 hostages (from the American missionaries, their relatives and 1 Canadian : 12 adults between 18 and 48 years old (5 men and 7 women) and 4 children aged 3, 6, 14 and 15 as well as an 8 month old baby) kidnapped by the Gang "400 mawozo" were released. Let's recall that the bus which transported missionaries members of "Christian Aid Ministries" based in Ohio, returned from the visit of an orphanage about thirty kilometers east of the capital, had been diverted Saturday, October 16, 2021, on the Ganthier road by heavily armed individuals.

Recall that the gang "400 mawozo" claims a million US dollars 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 by people for their release, threatening to execute the hostages if the ransom is not paid https://www.haitilibre.com/en/news-35061-haiti-news-zapping.html

The organization Christian Aid Ministries announced Sunday, November 21 in a statement "We have learned that two of the hostages in Haiti were released. We praise God for it ! Only limited information can be provided, but we are able to report that the two hostages who have been released are safe and sound, in good spirits and in care.

We cannot provide or confirm the names of those released, the reasons for their release, where they are from, or their current location. We ask that those who have more specific information about the release and the individuals involved would safeguard that information [for security reasons]

We encourage you to continue to pray for a complete resolution of this situation. As we rejoice in this release, our thoughts are with the fifteen people who are still in detention."

Inspector General Frederic Leconte Director of the Central Directorate of Judicial Police (DCPJ) confirmed this information without further details on the circumstances of these two releases.
