UPDATE: Baptists accused of child trafficking in Haiti


The AP has found several people who say their kids went with a U.S. Baptist group that tried to take them into the Dominican Republic without official paperwork. The bad news is that it contradicts the group's story that many of the kids were orphans or only had distant relatives. But many of those parents told the AP that they gladly sent their kids with the Americans.

A Haitian judge has been questioning the group. A Haitian prosecutor still hasn't decided whether to file charges.
