"The nation must stand up to fight these thugs," Peltrop told Reuters. The French citizens included one priest and a nun, he said.
 
Previously around two weeks ago, gunmen kidnapped a Haitian pastor and three others during a ceremony that was streamed live on Facebook. The kidnapping of the seven clergies was carried out by the notorious "400 Mawozo" gang, Haitian news agency Juno7 said.
