An American nurse and her child have been kidnapped in Haiti, according to a Christian aid charity she worked for.

Alix Dorsainvil was working in a community ministry near Port-au-Prince when she was taken, El Roi Haiti said in a statement.

The US state department said it was in “regular contact” with Haitian authorities.

Officials in Haiti have appealed to the international community to help break the grip of armed gangs on the country.

Mrs Dorsainvil is the wife of El Roi Haiti’s director and founder, Sandro Dorsainvil.

The age and gender of the child are not known.
