'Child traffickers' held in Haiti

Americans stopped while taking children across border say they had permission to do so.

    Haitian police have arrested 10 Americans suspected of trying to smuggle children out of the earthquake ravaged country.

    The government said that five men and five women were caught with 33 children as they were trying to reach the Dominican Republic without proper documentation.

    They are all members of a US baptist church, and say they were going to set up an orphanage for the children in the Dominican Republic.
