Tuesday, August 14, 2012

Colombia's ELN guerrillas released two pipeline company employees kidnapped last month in the oil-rich northeastern province of Arauca, a source with the International Committee of the Red Cross told Efe.

The two female captives were handed over to a delegation of the ICRC and the Catholic Church in a rural area near Fortul, Arauca, the source said.

Journalist Elida Parra Alfonso and environmental engineer Gina Paola Uribe are in good health and have already been taken back to Saravena, the city where they were abducted on July 25.
