STEVE INSKEEP, HOST: Within a few months, Haiti endured a presidential assassination, an earthquake, a crumbling economy and the spread of street gangs.

主持人史蒂夫·英斯基普:在幾個月內,海地經歷了總統遇刺、地震、經濟崩潰和街頭幫派擴張。

SCOTT DETROW, HOST: Authorities suspect one of those gangs in a mass kidnapping.

主持人斯科特·德特勞:當局懷疑其中一個團伙涉嫌大規模綁架。

Someone abducted 17 people. Sixteen are U.S. citizens; one is Canadian.

有人綁架了17個人。其中16人是美國公民; 一個是加拿大人。

And all are part of the U.S.-based missionary group.

他們都是美國傳教團體的成員。

The group includes children, and one of the children is 2 years old.

該小組包括兒童,其中一名兒童2歲。

INSKEEP: What is this missionary group, and what were the members doing in Haiti?

英斯基普:這個傳教團體是什么?他們在海地做什么?

CHARLES: Well, it's the Christian Aid Ministry. And the members, they're part of the Mennonite community.

查爾斯:嗯,是基督教援助部。這些成員是門諾派的一部分。

And these individuals actually belong in Haiti.

這些人實際上應歸于海地。

They provide assistance, education, other kinds of services.

他們提供援助、教育和其他服務。

There are a number of missionary groups that are there and that do assist the Haitian population.

那里有許多傳教士團體,它們確實幫助海地人民。

INSKEEP: And as best you can determine, what were they doing when they were captured? And how were they captured?

英斯基普:盡你所能確定,他們被捕時在做什么? 他們是如何被捕的?

CHARLES: They had been visiting an orphanage, and they were on their way back.

查爾斯:他們去參觀了一所孤兒院,正在回家的路上。

And they were traveling in a van, as we understand, and this is when they were captured by this gang.

據我們所知,他們當時正乘坐面包車旅行,也就是這時候他們被這一團伙抓獲。

This gang is known to attack vehicles and to basically kidnap the entire vehicle, whether it's a bus, it's a car or it's a van.

這個團伙以襲擊車輛而聞名,基本上會綁架整輛車,無論是公交車、小汽車還是面包車。

INSKEEP: Now, do I understand this correctly?

英斯基普:現在,我理解對了嗎?

This is on a highway leading out of Port-au-Prince and heading toward the border of the country, heading toward the Dominican Republic.

這是一條高速公路,從太子港通往多米尼加共和國邊境。

That's the highway in question here?

這就是我們要討論的高速公路?

CHARLES: It's actually a road. It's a national road.

查爾斯:實際上這是一條路。這是一條國道。

But, yes, it connects Haiti to the Dominican Republic, so it's very well-traveled.

不過,是的,它連接了海地和多米尼加共和國,所以它是一個旅游勝地。

And this has become an issue in recent years, not just, you know, in the last several days.

這是近年來的一個問題,而不僅僅是最近幾天的問題。

INSKEEP: And is it clear what it is the kidnappers want?

英斯基普:綁架者想要什么清楚嗎?

CHARLES: Well, usually when these situations happen, you will eventually hear from the kidnappers - well, not us, but, you know, the individuals or their family members where there's a request for a ransom.

查爾斯:嗯,通常當這種情況發生時,你最終會收到綁匪的消息——好吧,不是我們,但是,你知道,是那些被要求贖金的個人或他們的家人。

We do not yet have any information as to whether one has been issued and, if so, how much.

我們還沒有任何關于是否已經發布的信息,如果發布了,是多少。

These are usually large amounts. And the individuals or their family members or, in this case, the organization will have to negotiate.

這些通常是很大數額。個人或者他們的家庭成員,在這種情況下,傳教士組織將不得不進行談判。

Contrary to what a lot of Americans believe, the FBI doesn't go in and just release you.

與很多美國人的想法相反,聯邦調查局并不是進去就放了你。

They will assist you with negotiating the ransom release.

他們會協助你就釋放人質的贖金進行談判。

INSKEEP: Well, that raises the next question.

英斯基普:這就引出了下一個問題。

We're told the United States has become involved in the investigation here. What is the U.S. doing?

我們被告知美國已經介入調查。美國在做什么?

CHARLES: Yes, because these are American citizens.

查爾斯:是的,因為他們是美國公民。

Ironically enough, yesterday, the Haitian National Police had no confirmation whatsoever of this kidnapping while, you know, there were all of these reports, you know, and we had confirmations from others.

具有諷刺意味的是,昨天,海地國家警察并沒有證實這起綁架事件,然而,你知道,有很多報道,你知道,我們從其他人那里得到了證實。

But because we're talking about Americans, they would contact the embassy, which would then alert the FBI.

但因為我們說的是美國人,他們會聯系大使館,然后大使館會通知聯邦調查局。

The FBI arrived in-country yesterday.

聯邦調查局昨天到達國內。

And so they - their job now is to get in touch with either family members and help.

所以他們現在的工作就是聯系家庭成員并提供幫助。

INSKEEP: We are hearing about this because there are U.S. citizens involved, because it is a U.S.-based missionary group.

英斯基普:我們聽到這個消息是因為有美國公民參與,因為這是一個總部設在美國的傳教團體。

But I'd like to ask more broadly about the law-and-order situation in Haiti, which may pass by without our notice or without as much notice.

但我想更廣泛地詢問海地的法律和秩序情況,它可能會在我們沒有注意或沒有太注意的情況下過去。

How secure, how safe are Haitians feeling these days?

海地人感覺這些天有多安全?

CHARLES: Haitians are not feeling safe these days.

查爾斯:這些天海地人感到不安全。

I have to tell you, between July and September, the number of kidnappings in Haiti has increased by 300%, according to a local human rights organization.

我不得不告訴你,根據當地一個人權組織的數據,從7月到9月,海地的綁架案數量增加了300%。

There are kidnappings that happened that we don't know about because people do not go to the police.

有些綁架案我們不知道,因為人們不去找警察。

And so Haitians, whether they're doctors, whether they are merchants on the streets, whether they are in church - we had an incident just a week ago - people are potentially the next victim for a gang.

所以海地人,無論他們是醫生,是街頭商人,還是信徒——就在一周前,發生了一起事件——人們都可能成為這個團伙的下一個受害者。
