German aid workers released in Sudan's Darfur

KHARTOUM (Reuters) - Two German aid workers kidnapped in Darfur were released Tuesday and are in good health, a U.N. official said.

“They were released this morning...and they are with the International Committee of the Red Cross,” said the U.N. official who declined to be named.

The two men are now in Nyalla, the capital of South Darfur state.

They were working for Technisches Hilfswerk (THW) when they were taken from their compound in Nyala on June 22.
