Kidnapping on Rise in Haiti

Conditions in Haiti have led many to flee the island.  Things do not seem to be getting any better in the troubled country.  As Maria Abi-Habib and Ruth Graham report for The New York Times, incidents of kidnappings and ransoms have spiked in Haiti. In addition to a group of 16 American missionaries who were taken over the weekend, gangs are controlling much of Port-au-Prince, "kidnapping children on their way to school and pastors in the middle of delivering their services." As a reminder, last month, the U.S. removed thousands of Haitians from Del Rio, Texas, returning many of them to Haiti.
