Kidnappers Release Children in Haiti

Kidnappers in Haiti have released a group of children they abducted from a school bus early Thursday.

Police said Friday the kidnappers freed the children unharmed later Thursday. Local media report the abductors were paid an unspecified ransom. But the Associated Press quotes a police commissioner as denying any ransom was paid.

Police also said they are working to secure the release of an American missionary kidnapped Thursday in a separate incident.

Neither case was considered to be politically motivated.
