Gunmen kidnapped a Haitian pastor and three others during a ceremony that was streamed live on Facebook on Thursday April 1. The video shows a gunman approaching the pastor and church members and leading them off the stage.

The church members were released 72 hours later.

Haiti is plagued by soaring violence and kidnapping-for-ransom syndicates operating across the country, which has paralysed its economy.
