article imageGunmen seize Haiti schoolchildren

By bobSP     Dec 14, 2006 in World
A dozen schoolchildren in Haiti have been abducted by gunmen who hijacked a school bus and a car on Wednesday in broad daylight, local media report.
One group of children was travelling to school on the private bus when the men stopped it, forced their way aboard and diverted it, local radio reported.
Another group stopped a car with 4 children and 2 adults, they took the car and the children.
This is just the latest chapter in the kidnappings for ransom epidemic they've been facing in the country. Both incidents took place just north of the capital, but it is not known if they were linked. The Police spokesman, Frantz Lerebours, said it is unknown how many children were taken.
This problem is just one of many in violence-ravaged nation..every day it is a warzone there and children never know if they'll make it to or from school safely.
