CALLEBAS, Haiti (AP) - A decision by a Haitian prosecutor is expected after an appearance today by 10 American missionaries arrested and accused of child trafficking.
Haiti's communications minister says the prosecutor will decide whether to file charges or release them.
Prime Minister Max Bellerive has suggested the Americans could be prosecuted in the United States because Haiti's shattered court system may not be able to cope with a trial.
The 10 Baptists, most of them from Idaho, were arrested last week trying to take 33 Haitian children across the border into the Dominican Republic without the required documents.
Statements from parents who say they gave children to the missionaries contradict claims by the Baptist group's leader that the children came from orphanages or were handed over by distant relatives.
