Three of seven Catholic clergy kidnapped in Haiti released

Three of the seven Catholic clergy who were kidnapped in Haiti more than a week ago have been released.

Ten people were abducted in Croix-des-Bouquets, a town northeast of the capital Port-au-Prince, on April 11, including the seven clergy.

The clergy abducted were a group of four priests and a nun from Haiti, as well as one priest and one nun from France.

The three non-clergy were members of the family of a Haitian priest, who was not among those kidnapped.

The kidnapped victims were “on their way to the installation of a new parish priest” when they were abducted, Mazile previously told AFP news agency, with the kidnappers demanding a $1m ransom for the group.
