American missionaries kidnapped in Haiti: 17 American missionaries, including children, kidnapped by gang

Sky News says a group of 17 US missionaries – including children – have been kidnapped in Haiti.

They were on their way home from building an orphanage in the capital Port-au-Prince, Christian Aid Ministries said.

A voice message sent to a number of religious missions by the Ohio-based foreign aid group said “men, women and children” were being held by an armed gang.

It said: “The mission field director and the American embassy are working to see what can be done.

“Pray that the gang members will come to repentance and faith in Jesus Christ.”

Today’s news summary – Paper Talk

Wednesday’s front pages focus heavily on President Joe Biden’s decision to not extend the 31 August withdrawal date of US troops in Afghanistan – despite PM Boris Johnson and other world leaders pleas during a G7 meeting on the Afghanistan crisis.

The papers say it is now the last chance to escape the Taliban, with some describing the situation as a “failure” and slamming President Biden for seemingly backing Trump’s “America first” policy. 

Elsewhere, the papers carry front-page tributes to Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts – who has died at the age of 80.
