Port au Prince (Haiti), Feb.1 (ANI): Ten Americans have been formally charged by Haitian authorities for what the prime minister called the "kidnapping" of Haitian children.

"They were arrested on the border with children that were not theirs and that they had no papers for those children," Haitian Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive told ABC News.

"For me it's not Americans that were arrested, it was kidnappers that were arrested," he added.

The ten Baptist missionaries, mostly from an Idaho church group, said they were attempting to bring 33 Haitian children to an orphanage across the border in the Dominican Republic when they were arrested Friday night at a border crossing. (ANI)
