Christian aid ministries said the people were released in Haiti on Sunday and were “safe and in good spirits.” The group did not provide any further details.

On 21 November, the religious organization announced that the 400 Mawzo gang had released the first two hostages of a group of 17 people kidnapped in mid-October. The group of 16 US citizens consists of 12 adults and five children and includes an 8-month-old.

The leader of the 400 Mawjo gang had threatened to kill the hostages if their demands were not met. Authorities have said the gang was seeking $1 million per person, although it was not immediately clear if the group included children.

“We are thankful to God that three more hostages were released last night,” said the statement from Christian Aid Ministries, an Anabaptist mission organization based in Berlin, Ohio. “As with previous releases, we are not able to provide the names of those released, the circumstances of the release, or any other details.”

The group reiterated its request for supporters to dedicate Monday to Wednesday as days of prayer and fasting “to intervene for those still being held as well as those who have been released.” “
