HaitiA group of U.S. missionaries and their families reportedly was kidnapped by gang members in Haiti on Saturday as they were leaving an orphanage, just days after a team of U.S. officials visited the country and pledged support for its anti-gang measures.

Seventeen people, including some children, were abducted near the capital of Port-au-Prince while on a bus headed to the airport, according to the Center for Analysis and Research in Human Rights in Port-au-Prince, which monitors kidnappings. A voice message sent to multiple religious groups by Ohio-based Christian Aid Ministries said some of its group were on their way home from building the orphanage.

The message, obtained The Washington Post, says the ministries' field director is working with the U.S. Embassy. The field director’s family and one other unidentified man stayed at the ministry’s base while everyone else visited the orphanage.
