Two of the 17 North Americans who were abducted by a Haitian gang in mid-October have been freed, according to the organization on Sunday.

The Ohio-based Christian Aid Ministries said in a statement on its website that the released captives are in good spirits and are being cared for.

The missionaries and family members, a group of 16 Americans and one Canadian, were abducted on October 16th while returning from an orphanage in an area east of the capital, Port-au-Prince, that is controlled by one of Haiti's most powerful crime gangs.

Christian Aid Ministries has said the hostages are 12 adults, aged 18 to 48, and five children, ranging in age from 8 months to 15 years.

The statement noted that the kidnappers still hold fifteen of their victims, and it did not say which of the two had been released. Media reports say the gang 400 Mawozo is demanding a ransom of 1,000,000-dollar-per-head for the safe return of the missionaries.

FBI agents, Haitian authorities and the anti-kidnapping unit of the National Police have been negotiating with the kidnappers for more than a month.

The office of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced on Sunday that charging points for electric vehicles will be required to be installed in new bree... buildings in Britain starting next year.

A statement from the prime minister's office said the regulations would result in up to 145,000 extra charge points being installed in England each year through 2030.

That’s the year when the sale of new cars that run on gasoline and diesel fuels will end in Britain. Johnson is expected to announce the new legislation in a speech on Monday.
