Haiti registered 225 kidnappings during the first quarter of 2022, representing a 58% jump from the same period a year ago, as the Caribbean nation struggles to tame gang violence amid deep political turmoil, according to tabulations from a local human rights group.
In a report released Wednesday, the Center for Analysis and Research in Human Rights, a Haitian think-tank, said anecdotal evidence also showed that ransom demands are increasing and hostages are spending more time in captivity versus last year.
