A Haitian judge has freed eight of the 10 Americans arrested in Haiti on child kidnapping charges following January's earthquake and given them permission to leave the country on Wednesday, their lawyer has said.

AFP - A Haitian judge has freed eight of the 10 Americans held in the quake-battered country on child kidnapping charges, saying they can leave the nation Wednesday, their lawyer said.
  
"Eight of my clients will be set free. The judge wants to question two of my clients because they were in Haiti before the earthquake," said lawyer Aviol Fleurant.
  
Asked whether the judge in the case had already issued the release order, Fleurant said that he had, and that the eight could leave the country Wednesday with no bail to pay.
