Two more Christians freed after being abducted in Haiti

A Christian aid group has reported that two more employees and their boss have been released in Haiti, bringing the total of hostages to six.

VATICAN CITY — A Christian aid group has reported that two more employees and their boss have been released in Haiti, bringing the total of hostages to six.

While the Nativity of Our Lord Group released no information about the numbers, Haitian media report that only three people remained taken hostage: three staffers, church members and their spiritual director.

Nativity did not comment on the hostages. A spokesman for Nativity said church members kidnapped were working in a private clinic in the city of Les Cayes.

“We ask that anyone that has information about the status of the churches, members and our director to contact Nativity of Our Lord Mission and the police,” the group said in a statement Thursday.

No group has claimed responsibility for the kidnapping.

The hostages were among members of the evangelical church movement founded by American George John Lefkowitz. Police arrested 32 people Tuesday in connection with the abduction.

But police also arrested six suspects for having an “illegal presence” in Haiti.
