Ten Americans detained by police for taking children across the border.

Updated to add:  Some of the children may not be true orphans:

“I am no orphan” said one 8 year old transportee. Her mother had told her she was going off on a short holiday. The family of five others has arrived at the SOS Children’s Villages with leaflets they had been given when their child was taken, promising a better life with a swimming pool and tennis courts. Some of these children obviously still have parents who appear to have been persuaded to hand over their children under false pretenses. The allegations have to be thoroughly investigated but the Haitian police consider this incident as organised child trafficking. The group runs an adoption camp in the Dominican Republic where prospective parents can come and stay while formal adoption papers are arranged.
