All remaining missionaries kidnapped in Haiti have been released – Axios

The 12 remaining members of a Christian missionary group who were kidnapped by a Haitian gang in October are safe, Ohio-based Christian Aid Ministries said Thursday.
The big picture: The news comes two months after police say the 400 Mawozo gang kidnapped 17 U.S. and Canadian missionaries in Port-au-Prince and demanded a ransom. Five of the abducted missionaries had previously been released.
What they're saying: "We are tremendously relieved for them and their families, with whom they will soon be reunited," the State Department said in a statement Thursday.
