Church groups and volunteers from several U.S. states are stranded in Haiti after violent protests over fuel prices have led to canceled flights.

The Haitian government suspended a fuel price hike Saturday after violence broke out across the capital.

According to WDIV-TV, just over 40 members of Kensington Church in Troy are stuck in Haiti as part of a mission group called "Mission of Hope."

The church says they've been working with the U.S. Embassy and mission team and are hopeful for their safe return.
