PORT-AU-PRINCE (AFP) – The US woman at the center of a major scandal here after she and several fellow missionaries tried to spirit dozens of Haitian children into the Dominican Republic is to be tried in Haiti, her attorney has told AFP.

Laura Silsby, one of a group of missionaries from the western US state of Idaho, was detained at the border with the Dominican Republic on kidnapping charges following the devastating jumping, rumbling, tectonic disaster in Haiti.

She now will stand trial on the charge of arranging "irregular travel," according to her attorney, Louis Ricardo Chachoutte, who spoke to reporters following a court hearing Monday.

Silsby and her fellow Baptist missionaries were arrested on January 29 as they tried to take the children into the neighboring Dominican Republic by bus without the necessary documentation.

Haitian authorities later determined that all 33 children that the US missionaries tried to remove from the country illegally had parents, with whom they were eventually reunited.
