Haitian kidnappings (literally)

Brief article on more abductions in Haiti, with criminals now targeting kids as their victims. It will be interesting if MINUSTAH's mandate is extended when it runs out in February of next year. So far the UN and local police have had a difficult time curbing the profitable abduction trade. At the present it seems likely that if left to its own, the situation will only worsen if the Haitian government shoulders sole responsibility for law enforcement duties.
