People protest carrying a banner with a message demanding the release of kidnapped missionaries in Titanyen, north of Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Oct. 19, 2021.

PORT-AU-PRINCE — One day after the Center for Analysis and Research in Human Rights (CARDH) published an Oct. 19 report about the record number of kidnappings in Haiti, several people, including a nine-year-old, were abducted, Le Nouvelliste reported. 

The bandits kidnapped the group in Bon Repos in Croix-des-Bouquets, a commune outside Port-au-Prince where 17 missionaries were kidnapped last weekend. The area has gained notoriety as a stronghold of the 400 Mawozo gang, which is reportedly responsible for the missionaries’ abduction, according to the Miami Herald.
