The Other Other War
WASHINGTON - At least 80 Americans have been kidnapped in Haiti in the past year, including four murdered by thugs seeking big ransom payoffs, the Daily News has learned.
The victims, ranging in age from 2 to 70, were seized from cars, homes and even ripped from their beds amid a rash of abductions plaguing the impoverished Caribbean country.
Last year, 800 people, mostly Haitians, were kidnapped, according to U.S. officials. More than 60 were abducted in just the last two months.
