Gunmen Kidnap 10 Children in Haiti
By STEVENSON JACOBS 12.14.06, 12:15 AM ET

Gunmen abducted 10 children after hijacking a school bus and another car
Wednesday in brazen daylight assaults, according to local media reports.

Haitian police spokesman Frantz Lerebours confirmed that several students
were kidnapped, but said he did not know exactly how many had been taken.
Police were searching for the captors, he said.

Haitian broadcaster Radio Kiskeya reported at least six students were riding
to school in a private bus when several armed men stopped the vehicle, forced
their way aboard and ordered the driver to speed off to an unknown location.

Around the same time, armed men stopped a red Isuzu Trooper carrying four
children and two adults, Kiskeya said. The gunmen forced the adults out of the
car and fled with the children.
