Eugenio Vagni liberated

Successful mediation by a local politician liberates Eugenio Vagni from captivity.

This is the last of the three ICRC staffers taken hostage ~6 months ago on Jolo Island in the Philippines.


Local sources to Reuters are calling this a trade for captured Abu Sayyaf members.

For background on those arrests, please see "Lucky Catch" here at CompHyp on Thursday last.
