Three more Christian missionaries who have been held hostage in Haiti for more than seven weeks have been released, Christian Aid Ministries said Monday.

The group, released Sunday evening, were among 17 U.S. and Canadian missionaries who were kidnapped in Haiti on Oct. 16. Two other hostages, an American husband and wife, were freed on Nov. 22 due to illness without a ransom being paid, a source told the Miami Herald at the time.

“Those who were released are safe and seem to be in good spirits,” the organization said in a statement. “As with the previous release, we are not able to provide the names of the people released, the circumstances of the release, or any other details.”
