Police patrol through the streets of downtown Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Monday, Jan. 22, 2024. The release of the six nuns, along with their two drivers, was confirmed to Vatican News by Archbishop Max Leroy Mésidor, the president of Haiti’s bishops’ conference, on Thursday.

The release of the hostages comes after Pope Francis made a plea on their behalf during last Sunday’s Angelus.
