Sudanese officials say three foreign aid workers who were kidnapped in Darfur earlier this week will be freed shortly.
Earlier reports said the Canadian nurse, Italian doctor and French coordinator had already been released. Sudanese staff who were with the trio at the time of their abduction have been freed.
Unidentified gunmen kidnapped the employees of the Belgian branch of Doctors Without Borders on Wednesday near El-Fasher, in North Darfur state. Sudanese authorities have blamed bandits.
Earlier articles, like this one from the LA Times, reported a statement from the Italian Foregin Minister that the workers were freed, but this has been now contradicted.
