Swiss man kidnapped in troubled Haiti
By The Associated Press

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti – Three gunmen kidnapped a Swiss man from a community southeast of the Haitian capital over the weekend, U.N. police said Monday.

Thomas Noreinne, whose age and profession were not immediately known, was seized from an SUV in Petionville, a district near Port-au-Prince that is home to many foreigners and diplomats, U.N. police spokesman Fred Blaze said.

Officials with the Swiss embassy in Port-au-Prince confirmed that a kidnapping took place late Saturday but would not provide more details.

Kidnappings for ransom soared in Haiti after a 2004 uprising but have dropped sharply since late last year, when President Rene Preval and U.N. peacekeepers launched a crackdown on street gangs.
