Thirteen Canadians being detained in Ethiopia, including a dentist from Olds, have been granted bail.
Dr. Jared Ord was one of the volunteers detained while taking part in a two-week expedition with Canadian Humanitarian, a Medicine Hat-based non-profit agency that brings health and dental services to developing countries.
Red Deer orthodontist Dr. Ivan Hucal and dental assistant Melanie Bott were also scheduled to go on the mission. It’s not known if they are among those being held.
It was the second trip for the two, who were part of a 2018 Canadian Humanitarian trip to Ethiopia.
