Haiti missionary Laura Silsby says discussions 'going well'

Laura Silsby, a member of the US Baptist missionaries who were arrested after trying to attempt to leave Haiti with 33 children, has confirmed that the group is meeting with government officials and said that it is "going well".

Ms Silsby was interviewed inside a prison cell in Port-au-Prince where she and nine other missionaries were being questioned by a judge.

On Monday, Prime Minister Jean-Max Bellerive described the missionaries as "kidnappers" who had known "what they were doing was wrong".
