February 17 - U.S. missionaries released in Haiti

On February 17, eight of ten U.S. missionaries were released from Port-au-Prince jail after their arrest for attempting to transport 33 Haitian children into the Dominican Republic days after the January 12 earthquake. Most of the missionaries came from two Baptist churches in Idaho. They were arrested on kidnapping charges. The remaining two missionaries were released in March and May.
