Darfur aid workers are free after kidnapping ordeal in the Sudan
The Italian Forestry Ministry has just released a statement saying that the Doctors Without Borders members who were taken in Darfur almost two days ago are now free.
It is now confirmed that they were released an hour ago:
Four aid workers with French-based medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) who were kidnapped in Darfur have been released, MSF Italy said on Friday.
Doctors Without Borders itself is still claiming that they have made contact with all the doctors and that they are safe, but not that they have been released. They are saying that four doctors have been abducted, and not three.
The four MSF staff that remain abducted are an Italian doctor, a Canadian nurse, a French coordinator and a Sudanese watchman. All four work for the Belgian section of MSF.
There is no information as of yet on the Italian Ministry Website.
More information on this story when it becomes available.
