PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — Eight American missionaries charged with child kidnapping have been freed from a Haitian jail.

The group, looking bedraggled and sweat-soaked, walked out of the Haitian jail just after dusk Wednesday.

Escorted by U.S. diplomats, they were taken to an American field hospital inside the airport. Once they were safely inside a transport vehicle they flashed smiles and gave a thumbs up.

Their attorney says they are flying out Wednesday night.
